Mixed Martial Arts & Cage Fighting Basics : How to Mount in Mixed Martial Arts


ED WEDDING: Okay, so now Mychal is on top
again, now he’s going to do the same thing. He’s going to mount Musa. This time he’s actually
going to actually throw his strikes down at Musa. Okay, so he had the submissions first,
now he’s going to actually throw straight punches down at Musa’s head, okay, so this
is the ground-and-pound aspect of the mount position or he can throw his elbows, just
like that. Okay, notice Musa’s protecting himself which is okay, this is good for the
fighter, he’s not getting hit cleanly. Now if Musa’s hands come down where he gets tired
or whatever, and he’s getting hit flushly with his shots, they will stop the fight immediately,
okay, for safety reasons. Okay, so this the ground-and-pound aspect of the mount position
from the side control, he mounted on top of the guy and instead of–the guy is not giving
him any arms for him to submit him or lock him, so his second choice is to punch him,
strike him with the elbows or the fist. Mychal’s nice and erect, his body’s up so he has room
to punch, notice the straight punches coming down, he can also do hooking punches to the
side of the head, just like that, okay. And then of course the most devastating strike
would be his elbows, if he wanted to come with his elbows down on top of Musa’s face,
your opponent’s face, okay? This is an aspect of mixed martial arts that actually takes
a lot of skill to train these types of strikes and of course to train the type of positioning
you must establish on the ground.

  1. dude its not gay, its just training. wrestling in highschool is a bunch of kids in spandex jumpin on eachother, how do u call this gay?

  2. THe purpose of this position is that the guy mounted can hit the guy on the ground but the guy on the ground cannot hit the guy mounted.

  3. This is for MMA competitions. Maybe Modern Wing Chun has something to offer, but they need to start entering competitions. Do you know of any good MMA fighters that use those techniques on a regular basis?

  4. yeah so guy on the ground can punch straight to the nuts of the guy on top of him

    need a better shot then get your hips up and its open season on his balls

  5. he has a direct shot to the nuts(even more so if you get your hips up) why the hell would anyone punch to the head

  6. The guy on bottom has his elbows off the mat and up way to high, the guy in mount can just slide up the guys body to secure the mount and make escape that much harder.

  7. Hank Hill threw a hissy fit because Bobby whacked him in the nads. "Men don't hit below the belt," he said.
