Mount to Kata Gatame Arm Triangle

This is the move that I submitted Duane Ludwig with in K-l over in Japan. Just like the previous technique, it can be utilized when your opponent keeps his arms pressed tightly against his head to block your downward punches from the mount. Instead of pinning your opponent's arm to the mat, you want to force his arm across his throat and then hold it in place using your head. To ensure he can't escape, you then slip an arm underneath his head and clasp your hands together. After securing your lock, you step out into side control and circle around his head to synch in the choke. It is important to note that if you bail out to side control before your lock is firmly established, your opponent may escape and then you'll have sacrificed your positioning.
