    How do you deal with the person on bottom attempting to block your foot with his when he is going for the upa escape to secure your leg and prevent you from being able to move to side mount? Is it just a matter of prevention (i.e., keeping a high enough mount that your foot stays far enough from his so he can’t block it), or is there another strategy?

      So trapping the foot prevents you from extending your foot out for base but you can still lift your knee straight up and your foot will be up right underneath it. The idea is not to stretch the foot out, lift the knee and slide the foot up, your foot should be right next to the hips

    When controlling the mount, how do you keep ultra flexible guys from throwing their feet in front of you?

      Being lower towards their hips helps but with flexible guys that can always be an issue so you just need to be ready to swing your hands back in to clear the legs or feet off your body

    Very good concepts. Thanks Henry.

    Very clear why what many, many people call sidemount isn’t in fact such because there is no mount per se. Thank you for demonstrating this.
