The mounted position is probably the worst position to be in as far as a real fight is concerned. Having someone on your back swinging away is the only thing that beats it.
You have to really understand this position in order to escape, especially when you have a big person trying to hit your face.
There are MANY ways out. I would suggest getting a good BJJ video series if you want to learn more. Renzo's tape series in EXCELLENT for a beginner as is his book Brazilian Jiu Jitsu: Theory and Technique. Check it out.

Heh, I was doing this in class last night with the instructors.
What would happen if a one hand clapper attempted to stop a tree falling in the woods when no one else was around?

(from a street fight perspective)
From the mounted position, your best options are to keep your opponent close and hope they tire out, and attmept to choke them with your hand/ their clothing if you have the energy/arm strength, alternatively, if you can get a hold of one hand and keep it in tight you can attempt to bridge and roll them out.
Other than that, you could pull their hair, call them names, poke them in the eye, threaten to call your mom...
EDIT - Hook the cheek, trap the arm, bridge out

Im concidered a light-weight 143 pounds and i like working from the guard, since most of my teammates are heavyer and lot dificult to be turned. But i always try to get the Mount...some times i succeed sometimes not.

Being mounted is horrible, if you're under someone who knows what they're doing you're very likely to lose.

A technical question about the mount: when I was rolling with a guy a couple of days ago, I managed to mount him (both legs past his), but he managed to get both of my arms on one side of his neck and tuck me in tight, sort of like the kata gatame choke, and I had to struggle hard to get my arm free. I felt kind of foolish - I had the mount, but he could squeeze with one arm and punch my ribs with the other. Any advice on what to do in that situation (other than not get into it in the first place)?
