I learnt to umpa almost exactly like this when I was a white belt, with exactly the same queues. It got to a point where being mounted was my favourite position as it was so easy to escape for me and get back on top even against much higher belts. Thank you for breaking it down so I can see what I have been doing. Damon B July 27, 2018 at 8:37 am Log in to Reply Excellent material as always, Henry!!

Maybe I need to just practice with someone and see where their hand is landing. Anthony R September 4, 2019 at 8:31 pm Log in to Reply Thanks Henry. I’ve been practicing the technique as was shown. One question though, does my eyes always have to look at the the direction I’m going to bridge?

Without the foot trapped, it seems like they could base out with their foot to prevent the bridge Leave A Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
