    Just watched Rickson use this positioning to get mount vs. Nishi in the Japan Vale Tudo 94 event. So thankful for your courses, Henry!

    Are you putting weight on their far shoulder in this position?

    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!!!

    I couldn’t tell if your leg go released when you end up in mount.

    I’ve also been messing around with the chin strap guillotine from here. Any thoughts on that option?
