The mount is one of the most dominant positions in Jiu Jitsu. One of the most common attacks from mount is the choke. When you launch this attack, you can expect your opponent to react by moving their body to the side.
This creates an opportunity to transition to the "technical mount", from where we can secure our dominance and initiate a new sequence that will finalise with us taking the back and having multiple submission options.
In the video Sensei Douglas Santos explains the details of this position, and what you should be doing with your legs, feet, grips and weight distribution throughout this transition.
