    Proper way to throw punches from mount?

    I've been wondering off and on for a couple of days. Is there a "proper" way to punch someone when you are ontop in mount? I mean, it would be pretty easy to say "no, just hit them" especially as most of the punches I see from mount are the standard "elbow in the air by the head and then punch." However, is there a better way to punch from this position? A more economical/powerful way?

    Dunno, I could just be putting too much thought into it but you never know.

    Two schools of thought here.

    One is to drop bombs. To do this you want to pin thier head to the ground with one hand holding their neck and punch with the other hand.

    The other is to do a lower mount with grapevined legs and throw short hooks. This is obviously the less risky proposition, but the likelyhood of a KO is also diminished proportionally.

    Another question, somewhat related to JKing's. Does anyone machinegun straight right hands from knee on stomach? I always see people posturing as if they're ready to unload a solid straight, with their other hand holding behind the opponent's head. Is it too easy for the guy on bottom to escape if you're concerned with punching?

    I'm curious, because I really hate being stuck under knee on stomach, and if it's a great "punching platform", I plan on using it a lot, and making my sparring partner suffer when we start sparring in more of a MMA format.

    Would I be right in assuming the choice between the two has to do largely with any size advantage of the person on top and the bottom person's skill at escaping?

    If I know the guy on the bottom is good at escaping, I might be more inclined to use the second method. But if I'm much bigger than him, that might negate some of his ability to escape, etc.

    well, personally I like to keep my mind focused on securing my mount - avoiding any escapes or bucks, controlling the hips. I try to keep my hands on auto drive - its not like they can effectivly punch back from the button. All I gotta do is keep punching.

    Both are good for different situations, I think...

    Some say that when dropping bombs like in the first exaple, that they should be straight downward, so you don't throw yourself offbalance. But there is more GnP power in an arching punch and I'm not sure if they affect your balance that much, so I'm not sure on that one.

    Caveman punches are great too... or hammerfists, whatever you want to call them. It's a more natural movement from that position anyway.
