Mount position is a dominant ground control technique, and this week we delve into mastering its nuances. Patience is our ally as we work on maintaining and escaping the mount, understanding that each transition requires a strategic and patient approach.

Knee on Belly: Precision and Control

The knee on belly position is a powerful tool in Jiu-Jitsu. Week 10 focuses on wielding this position with precision and control. We learn to navigate the delicate balance between maintaining control and transitioning to the next phase, embracing patience as our constant companion.

Word of the Week: Patience
