“All good performance starts with clear goals.”
One of the fundamental techniques in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the side mount control.
Despite the name “control”, what makes this technique work well is the constantly adjustments and repositioning of your body weight. But it is important to keep in mind the need of a clear goal once you have the side mount control. In a sport Jiu-Jitsu competition for example the rules are clear and holding a side mount control without trying to progress can result in fault, and the athlete can be punished for stalling.
In today’s video lesson, given by Professor Diogo Almeida “Tutuba” from Gracie Barra Reserva in Rio de Janeiro, you will learn a great side mount submission. The technique is explained step by step for you to expand your knowledge, progress in the side mount and not get penalized by stalling.
