    What do you do if he grab you ankle and pushing it to half guard?

      I can put pressure with my knee to mount or turn my hips to switch to cross side to free my foot.

        Hi Henry, could you please make a video to show how from the knee on the belly we can go back to cross side again?

          or to mount from here please

          I’m not sure me making a video would add any details that would be useful for that

    What do you think of the Knee on Chest being slightly better for Control and Pressure? (Not Directly over the chest, but knee inline with lower pec)….

      It can work up higher but you also expose them to grabbing your leg with their arm when it’s that high

    Could you show the different hand placements on the attacker? Maybe one hand controlling the arm while the one is in the gi or throat. I guess it depends on the way the person on the bottom reacts. I believe you have said you like to use your legs for control and your arms for the attack. Thank you for reply in advance.
