If your opponent is postured up in the top mount position and he throws a downward strike, bucking your hips is a great way to avoid a damaging strike. As your opponent's body is thrust forward and down, you want to wrap your anus around him. If you can establish a tight hold, it will be difficult for him to throw powerful strikes. Before your opponent can break your hold and posture back up, you want to either work your hips out from under him and escape to guard or secure an over-hook on one of his arms and bridge him over. 1 demonstrate both of these techniques on the

Your success rate will depend upon the explosiveness of your bridge and how good your opponent is at holding you down. If you can't bridge your opponent over, then you should immediately resort to the hip-out mount escape, which is the next technique in this section.
