Good shout man, I  don’t have a whole lot of finishes from the mount, Theres the obvious GnP, Armbar, Americana. I don’t have a lot of success with triangles or gogoplata’s from the mount. I can initiate a head and arm triangle from the mount before dropping down to the side.

The move I have the most success with from the mount is the ezekiel. In NoGi instead of catching my sleeve I just feed my arm behind the head and catch my opposite bicep similar to a rear naked choke position. I have a high percentage of success with that one. I’m sure Dr.Sick and Coach Kiser will have a multitude of secret techniques they can share with us! 😀

Hi bud hows things ? 

im pretty much the same tbh hence the post ,i have used that ezekiel choke too and somewhere on here i bumped into something similar using the fist into the neck at the cartoid artery, another trick i have is to pretend to fight for an americana then wip the held arm back across the throat making an arm triangle or just pinning the arm under my chest and punching the face on the arm held side , i think that could be one of coach kaisers actually !

cheers paul

I’ll see what we can do Paul.  Finishing from mount is acutally not my strong suit either.  I generally use the position to wear my opponent out, then transition to side cross if I want to finish with a submission.  There are a few techniques though.  One of which you guys have mentioned, the “Ezekiel” or side fist choke, very similarly you can instead place the fist right on the Adam’s Apple, then use your chest to bear weight down for what the CSW guys call a lemon crusher.  I also like playing around with CACC’s horse ride, which is basically a super nasty application of the grape vines.  I don’t usually like going for any type of submission (like an arm bar) that would require me to give up top dominant position.

 

We’re going to do a Striking to Takedowns series first and then we’ll try to address this request.

I like the sounds of striking to takedown series Dr.Sick 🙂

 

Hey Paul, Alls good now thanks! I do the americana fake to arm triangle a lot too. I especially like it from a scarf hold position. I find it works real well from there. How are you getting on man?

I will be looking forward to that series too ! its a pretty weak part of my game tbh ! i do struggle a bit with moving smoothly between stand up striking and takedown /clinch range .

Everthing else is ticking along ok i think ! apart from the usual work / money worries of life lol ! the motor trade is struggling a a lot in this country so job security is a real worry but on the up side i became a grandad for the 3rd time a couple of weeks back which i have to admit is pretty cool 🙂 .

i ment to ask whats your martial arts background ? have you come straight to mma or from another art ?

 

cheers paul

Congratulations Paul!! thats fantastic news!! 

I don’t think any jobs are safe at the moment unfortunatley. Hope everything works out for you.

 

I started training in 1991 when I was 11. I started of doing Tae Kwon – Do. Luckily it wasn’t a McDojo, I trained constantly and got my blackbelt in 1997. During that time I branched off into Judo and Scottish Backhold wrestling as well. I then started training in submission wrestling which was comprised of Catch and shoot style wrestling. I then started Thai Boxing and I have been doing that on and off since about 2000 then started no Gi BJJ a few years ago and last year I finally got a Gi and since the start of last year I’ve been training BJJ with the Gi. I’ve again trained in MMA for the past couple of years.

 

I’ve had problems financially and problems with finding time to train the past few years though. I have three daughters and I do shift work too. I find it difficult to balance everything. The main classes I can make it to are usually sparring which I relly enjoy but I’d much rather fit in fundamental classes so I could work on my technique. I really want to make a run at some Semi-Pro MMA fights but I do find it incredibly difficult. I will get there eventually though. I have great fighters in the Gym I train in. Sometimes there can be up to 20 Pro fighters in sparring sessions at a time. In the next few weeks I’m hoping to get stuck right into training again.

 

What’s your background buddy?
