    Hello Henry, great material like always. In our school we call it the shifted mount.

      Yes, I’ve heard it called a lot of different names, modified mount, technical mount, headlock mount. The reason I call it side mount is because this is the mount position you need to transition to every time the person on bottom gets to their side.

    Can you place your hand behind the attacker head and apply this choke? Your right arm would be under the persons right armpit. Would this work the same way?

      Yes you definitely can shoot the arm behind the head also, it’s just easier to defend by them keeping their elbow pinched to their side, but yes if they get sloppy definitely and it’s a lot of leverage, and in that case you stretch the arm behind the head.

    Seeing this again after playing with it from the back made the finish make more sense. The connection of turning the shoulder only with the grip and arm loose was fantastic.

    The big light bulb for me was realizing if my arm is not loose I’m actually helping him defend.

    I’ve had an Realisation (No my head doesn’t hurt 🤯🤕, Lol). As the strong shape’s in grappling are when ur extremities get closer to ur Core. Almost every Choke is better when the elbow’s come in toward’s the Core also. Everything from this Choke to a Reverse Ezekiel. Thank’s Henry! 🙂🤙🏻….
