Game Changing Moves: Mount Escapes & Open Guard Passes DVD by Brent Littell
“I’m not going to tap to weight. I’m not going give up to a smother.” These are the thoughts that race through your mind as your opponent sits on top of you in mount. He feels as heavy as a house, and he gets heavier with each second that goes by. You fight off feelings of claustrophobia and anxiety as he shifts his weight onto your chest. You feel the life being sucked out of your lungs and hope you can catch one last breath. Frantic, you stick up your arm and hope he takes the armbar so you can breath again.
Does this sound familiar? Do you fear heavy opponents mounting you and taking your breath? Well, after viewing this instructional, these screams of desperation will quiet down to whispers of discomfort and eventually transform to feelings of confidence.
In Brent Littell’s newest installment of instructionals, he covers mount escape tactics. Brent adds crucial details to the escapes that you already know so that they can work under pressure. He also shows rarely seen mount escapes from technical mount and one hand in the collar. He creates a framework so you can stay safe in mount.Like in other instructionals from Brent Littell, he addresses how to systematically identify the position, how to identify the proper escape for the position, and how to use the right details to make the escapes effortless. If you have ever been stuck under someone and helpless, this is the instructional for you.
Don’t throw up your arms and pray your opponent takes the armbar, have a plan!
