When I was first starting out in jiujitsu I was 11 the only kid in class. Everyone else was 3x my size! As I started getting older and better I was able to start getting to top positions a lot more.

There is a massive 50% OFF  SALE on Video Instructionals at BJJ Fanatics, which feature quality instructionals from Tom DeBlass, Craig Jones, Dean Lister, Bernardo Faria and many more….(Type in the code ‘WATCHBJJ” and you will receive a further 10% discount on your purchases)

But the problem I ran into was if I tried to hold the mount I would get launched across the room. I tried going to fat boy mount and it just wouldn’t work on someone to big and strong.

So I learned that I don’t always have to keep the mount. Sometimes it is better to just switch off to knee on belly than go back if possible or circle to the back. I mix this in with the fat boy mount and I can usually keep to position much easier now.
