(Mount, with Gi)

A Technique from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

These techniques should only be practiced with the supervision of an experienced instructor.
Practicing the moves incorrectly could result in serious bodily injury or death.

Here I have my opponent in the mounted position.
I begin by securing his right arm at the tricep with my right hand.
Next I pivot to the left, placing my right foot flat on the floor near my opponent's belt and my left knee near his head. My right hand is clutching my gi to keep my opponent's arm from sliding out.
I then push my opponent's head to the side as I circle my left knee around his head.
Once I have passed my knee around I secure my opponent's arm with both hands.
Next I squeeze my knees together and fall back, extending his arm.
To finish the move, I pull down on the arm, press my knees together, and lift my hips.
