What technique can you tell me to try (besides my present technique of squirming around while trying not to give up my back) to escape from mount? I am getting killed in sparring. So far, my mentor/coach just says "practice trying to not get mounted in the first place." Because when you get mounted, you deserve to get whupped. For you guys that play golf, Ben Hogan once walked past a younger player who was practicing bunker shots and told him to work more on not getting in the bunker in the first place....but I for one believe in practicing the bunker shots (and mount escapes) just in case.
