Striking to Arm

Most fighters know not to straighten their anns upward when in the bottom mount position. However, when you establish neck control and begin raining down punches at your opponent's face, there is a good chance that he will forget this cardinal rule and straighten his arms to either block your strikes or push you off him. The moment he does this, you have an opening to quickly transition to an arm bar and finish the fight.

I'm in the mount position. Opening my left hand, I drive the 'V' between my thumb and fingers into Beach's neck. To strangle him, I lock my left arm straight and drive my weight down into his neck.

Keeping Beach's head pinned to the mat with my left hand, I drop my fist into his left eye.

As I bring my right hand back to throw another strike, Beach extends both arms in an attempt to block the anticipated blow.

I cock my right hand back to drop a punch to Beach's face.

Keeping Beach's head pinned to the mat with my left hand, I drop my fist into his left eye.

As I bring my right hand back to throw another strike, Beach extends both arms in an attempt to block the anticipated blow.

Dropping my weight onto Beach, I step my right leg over his head and sit down on his left shoulder. It is important that when making this transition you get your hips below your opponent's trapped elbow to avoid losing the submission.

The moment Beach extends his arms, I post my left foot on the mat, rotate my hips in a counterclockwise direction, and drop my right arm to trap his left arm to my chest.

As I start to fall down to my back, I wrap my right arm around Beach's left arm to secure it to my chest.

Keeping my legs coiled tight, I fall all the way down to my back and latch onto Beach's left arm with both hands. After making sure Beach's left thumb is pointing toward the ceiling, I finish the submission by squeezing my knees together, pulling his arm toward my chest with both hands, and elevating my hips.

I'm postured up in the mount position.
