Arm Push and Roll to the Rear Mount

Body Positioning Moves Basic Ground Fighting Techniques

Arm Push and Roll to the Rear Mount. The fighter starts this technique in the front mount.

(1) Step 1. When the enemy attempts to protect his face from punches by crossing his arms over it, the fighter uses both hands to push one arm farther across and captures it in place by using his body weight.

(2) Step 2. While keeping control with one hand, the fighter uses the other hand to reach around the enemy’s head and grasp the wrist of the captured hand.

(3) Step 3. The fighter now places the first hand on the enemy’s elbow and, by pushing with his chest, turns the enemy onto his stomach. The hand on the elbow is used to hold the enemy in place while the fighter repositions his chest for further pushing.

(4) Step 4. The enemy will sometimes use his elbow as a post to avoid being turned to his stomach. When this happens, the fighter brings his weight slightly off of the enemy and uses his hand to pull the elbow under the enemy, pushing him forward onto his stomach.

(5) Step 5. From this position the enemy normally tries to rise up and get his knees under him. When he attempts this, the fighter sits up and brings both legs around, “hooking” them inside of the enemy’s legs, and grasps his hands together around the enemy’s chest. One arm should be over the enemy’s shoulder and the other should be under his arm.
