Double Attack Mount

The double attack mount is an excellent way to put your opponent between a rock and a hard place when he keeps his arms tight to his face to block your downward strikes from the mount. To secure the position, you want to push your opponent's arm across his neck much like you did when going for the kata-gatame arm triangle, except here you are going to lock his arm in place with your body rather than your head. Once you've got his arm locked across his throat, you reach your hand underneath his head, grab hold of his trapped wrist to take his arm completely out of the picture, and then use your control to force him onto his side. I call it the double attack mount because the control position gives you a couple of options. With your opponent on his side, you can attack him from the mount or roll him over and attack him from his back, which I show how to do in the next sequence.

I'm in the mount.

I drop a straight right punch down to Beach's face.

Expecting more punches, Beach locks his arms against his head to protect his face. The moment he does this, I begin pushing his left arm across his neck with my right hand. I also drop my left hand down into his neck and start leaning my weight forward.

I drop a straight right punch down to Beach's face.

I push Beach's left arm across his neck using my right hand, and then I drop my weight on top of his arm to pin it in place.

Keeping my weight pressed forward, I drag my right elbow across Beach's face and post it on the mat to the right of his head.

Looping my right arm underneath Beach's head, I bring my right knee up and lean slightly to my right side. As I do this, I latch onto Beach's left wrist with my right hand, if you can't reach your opponent's wrist, use your left hand to move his trapped arm closer to your right hand.

Keeping my weight pressed forward, I drag my right elbow across Beach's face and post it on the mat to the right of his head.

I drag my right arm across the mat toward the left side of Beach's head. It is very important not to lift your arm off the mat because it will eliminate a portion of your downward pressure and can allow your opponent to pull his trapped arm free. Once I've positioned my right arm on the left side of his head, I begin sliding my arm underneath his head.

I push Beach's left arm across his neck using my right hand, and then I drop my weight on top of his arm to pin it in place.

Sliding my left arm underneath Beach's left arm, I latch onto my right wrist with my left hand.

Posturing up and posting my left foot on the mat, I pull back with my right hand. This draws Beach's left arm tight around his neck and forces him to roll over onto his right side. I call this the double attack position.

Maintaining a firm grip on Beach's left hand and keeping my left leg snug to his midsection, I pull my left arm free, cock it back, and prepare to drop downward punches.

I blast my left hand into Beach's unprotected face. Although I can land an assortment of strikes from here, I will mostly likely attempt to finish the fight by either taking Beach's back and working for a choke or applying a submission from the mount.

Sliding my left arm underneath Beach's left arm, I latch onto my right wrist with my left hand.
