So thankful for your courses, Henry! Henry A June 15, 2017 at 8:02 pm Log in to Reply Yup!

Edward K October 13, 2018 at 6:56 am Log in to Reply Henry, I’ve been having great success with this top position. I have also been wrapping my left arm around his head in a chin strap guillotine position. This seems to further distract my partner from holding onto my foot while attempting to mount. Do you see any downsides to this? Thanks!!! shehab f March 15, 2019 at 11:58 pm Log in to Reply I couldn’t tell if your leg go released when you end up in mount.
