    Video - Under Arm Armlock from Mount When Opponent Stalls Out

    What's up everyone, just wanted to share a new video that I put up. It's an armbar from the mount when your opponent tries to stall you out by hugging around your body. This is very common when they are up on points in a tournament but ended up getting mounted and also very common in an MMA situation.

    Some key points:

    - Bring one of your elbows to your knee.
    - Step up with the leg that has the elbow to the knee.
    - Make sure you keep your arm tight to your opponent's arm
    - Push your hand on your opponent's face and push down on it so you can break their grip.
    - Use your other hand to block them from trying to defend the armbar. The key is to defend their defense.
    - Switch to an s-mount type position.
    - Lean your body towards your opponent's legs because this will help you get your leg over his face easier.
    - You can either tighten your elbow to your body to get the under arm armlock, or you can switch your grip to a regular armbar (I recommend grabbing your opponent's leg with your arm so it's harder for them to get out.)

    Additional Points:

    - The s-mount switch should be at most a 2 step process of turning your leg
    - Also if end up falling backwards because you felt unbalanced and your opponent tries to sit up on you in and attempt to escape, make sure you push on their face with your hand so you can get them back down.

    You're an extremely good teacher. I watched and feel very confident that I can get it to work. Thanks for posting this.

    I love this video. I was trying to explain this exact thing to someone last night only not nearly as well.

    Thanks for the positive comments everyone. Let me know how it works out for you if you find yourself in this type of situation.

    Awesome. I see this position in MMA almost every time someone gets mount on their opponent.

    I watched this video last night and used it in sparring this morning against someone who hugs from under mount all the damn time. It worked without much of a hitch. I did struggle with the last point you mentioned (I nearly fell backwards because they turned into me) but I remembered what you mentioned about pushing the face and nothing more came of it.

    So it worked well? I think that's what you were saying...haha...that last part at least, you were able to make it work by pushing on their face right?

    I used it today, and it worked like a dream. I had a little trouble trying to stay stable while going to S-mount, but once I was there it finished just like you showed.

    Thanks a bunch!
