    Gogoplata from mount

    Ok.. so lately I have been working on my flexibility to do positions more swift such as the lotus pose. I found it helps out the gaurd and just martial arts in general. This video has caught my attention

    (video of gogoplata from mount)

    I have like no problem throwing my leg over but when ever I go for a gogoplata they just roll me right over. I have only done it like once
    but... has any one else used this technique proficiently and what to do you think about it? I think it's a great technique for me because I always end up in mount and my legs are long.

    I'm still working on flexibility and will always. But I really want a general opinion about this submission. THANKS!

    Relax - someone will eventually notice your question and reply.

    I'm flexible and have long legs too. I don't like the gogoplata because it's fairly easy to defend, and I feel like there are better subs from top mount (triangle and arm attacks for me).


    (Res says it better below - I was being nice.)

    The gogoplata is parlor trick unless you're, say, Shinya Aoki.

    I have done it in the past, it's something a lot like the flying triangle or armbar. Both not impossible or unheard of just not really that high percentage. Clearing the arms while maintaining a stable base is really the issue.

    Forget about the gogo. It's low percentage, easy to defend when you know how, and usually only works because someone has never seen it.

    If you like mount and have long legs you should try the mounted triangle.

    I like using the gogoplata as a setup for the arm bar from mount. I don't think I've ever actually landed that gogo, but you're three quarters of the way to a nice tight arm bar anyhow. They show it as an 'in case it doesn't work' in the first video, but for me that is usually the end goal.

    Gogo is a comedy submission to use on people you brutally outclass.
