Dominating from the Top Position (diary entry)

Striking from the mounted position1mount20.03.19


Tonight I had a special hour and a half lesson with my veteran client. We continued training MMA ground fighting, focusing on the top position that was introduced last week.


The warm-up consisted of various ground crawling and snaking movements before moving onto a transitioning drill. This drill was then layered with submissions. It was then layered with strikes. We worked a lot on capturing arms and keeping the hips low throughout the transitions. Next we looked at the sit-out escape and several variations of this movement, including arm/shoulder locks and taking the back mount.


We ended the lesson with 5 minutes specific submission fighting from the top position and then 5 minutes specific MMA fighting from the top position.
