H Mount Stabilization Control

? The first thing you want to do when you reach the mount is stabilize your position. After putting in all that work to get 0 there, you want to make sure that your opponent doesn't escape. To stabilize the mount, drop your weight down on top of your opponent, wrap an arm underneath his head, and drive a shoulder down into his face to cause him some discomfort and limit his mobility. If you have your left hand wrapped around your opponent's head, you can either strike h with your right hand or post it on the mat above your opponent's arms to secure your base. Deciding which option to 0 choose depends upon the situation and your opponent's struggle to escape the bottom position. To secure the lower portion of your base, touch your heels together underneath your opponent's legs. If you prefer locking your feet, this can ^ be done also. Once you stabilize the mount, immediately start your offense to see what openings you can create.

breaking over-underto neck control

When in the mount, you never want to allow your opponent to secure an over-hook and an under-hook because it increases his chances of rolling you over to your back. If your opponent does manage to wrap you up in this manner, you must know how to break his hold and create separation so you can strike and work for submissions. This technique and the one that follows are both excellent ways to accomplish this.
