Side Control #2- (Also called Side Mount) The side mount often follows the side control. Here, you place your chest on your partner’s chest and should be perpendicular to him. You want to get one arm under his head and your other arm under his far arm. You then clasp your arms together to have a secure lock. He may try to come towards you and hook his leg, in which case you bring your arm out and fend off his legs. From the side mount you can mainly apply submissions to your partner’s head, neck, and arms. Your body should be perpendicular to his.
