Would you like to have more pressure from the Mount position in BJJ?

The Mount can be one of the best position in BJJ if you know how to use it.

You can slowly squeeze the life from your opponent and setup the submission.

It’s also a great position from a fighting stand point.

The only problem is, it can also be a very difficult position to hold at times.

Many people in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu experience an issue where they can’t seem to generate much pressure, or hold the Mount.

This is a problem I’ve experienced as many of my students have as well.

In this video, I show some very simple adjustments to the way that you hold the mount position. Which can make all the difference.

The biggest idea I share in this video is getting the weight off the hips.

With the weight placed on the persons hips they have a lot of power beneath you to lift you and knock you off balance.

I’ve found from years of Brazilian Jiujitsu that it’s easier for me, and harder for my opponent to escape, if I hold mount higher up.

They have less drive from their hips and I’m able to put more pressure on them.

Hope this video helps you with your BJJ Mount attacks!
