    The key to maintaining the back-mount while falling to the weak-side is a strong underhook (armpit) control. If you have deep and tight underhook control while falling to the weak-side, your opponent can not drive his shoulder blades to the mat and slide out.

    This is why, unlike most people, Ryron prefers to connect his hands with the over-hook arm on top of the underhook arm (seatbelt control). This allows him to "pull" his underhooking arm as deep as possible. If the opponent defends the arms by grabbing the top arm, he is ok with that because they set themselves up for the arm isolation (top leg).

    Sure. But I think the reason we seem to be missing each other's point is that you are talking about keeping back and I'm talking escaping from the back. We are coming at it from different angles. I get it, falling to the weak side gives more options to attack. But it also makes it easier to escape. Or are you saying one should then fall to the strong side when trying to escape back mount?

    I actually won a tournament like that once as a white belt, going against a purple belt.

    Could be because the guy was in his late thirties, hadn't planned on competing and his semifinal lasted about 45 minutes, but hey... :p

    Am i missing something, or are the Ezekiel and Kimura grips (and the armbar from it) not accessible from the "Strong side?" It also seems easier to transition to the bow and arrow

    On the strong-side, the leg which has to pass over the head for the armlock is stuck under the body of your opponent.
