This week's Side Mount Bottom techniques are part of the GB1 Fundamentals module with Master Carlos Gracie Jr.
Have you checked out the GB Online Instagram account?
In our first video we see Master Carlos begin in the Guard and his opponent is looking to pass with a standard leg on the shoulder stacking pass. Master Carlos' first movement is to keep his leg heavy on the opponents arm to kill the initial movement.
Important detail: If the passer succeeds in getting past his leg, Master Carlos posts on the opponents elbow (preventing the opponent from controlling the head of Master Carlos) and performs the hip escape to replace guard.
