Technical Mount: Position, Submissions, Escapes

In the beginner's class this week (and last) at Devine Jiu Jitsu Charleston, the instructors have been covering the technical mount (also known as modified mount or the double or triple mount position). While my busted elbow is preventing me from training and practicing, it's not keeping me from watching and learning. So, to help some of the new students, I thought I would put together a post on the technical mount.

First up, there are two videos by two legends of jiu jitsu (Saulo Ribeiro and Damian Maia) showing how to maintain mount position--which contain details for how to transition into technical mount when your opponent tries to escape the mount. These two videos are followed by several others than show how to set up submissions from the technical mount (beginning with a video by Master Pedro Sauer). Finally, I have posted two videos which show escapes from modified mount (including a video by Xande Ribeiro). Collectively, these videos should help you learn some of the important details and options from this important position! So, watch, learn, and go train!

Videos are below the fold...
