    I remember rolling around with a Gracie JJ instructor once and he said that he held the mount fairly low for control in grappling.
    If he was in a street fight, he would go as far up as he could.

    Anyone here considered it?

    Fairly high. Control the use of his arms and try to talk him down if the situation can be calmed down. Works like a charm as most street fights are just a bunch of people drunk talking shit and then getting pulled apart. Mount, control, talk, and de-esclate.

    If the guy can't be calmed down, elbow his head into mush and then run.

    High enough to dangle a loogie over the face of my attacker to make him renounce his criminal ways.

    I think going to high would be a mistake. Most times when someone gets mounted in a street fight, there first reaction is to give there back so they can get to there knees and get up. Going to high seems like you wouldn't be able to counter and get to their back...

    Yes you want to be mobile.

    I would have knee with an underhook and make sure I can see what is around me.

    HA! You believe this nonsense about mount being the best position for controlling someone in a street fight. Clearly the best position is gun control, unless they do Ameri Do Te...then even god can't help you.

    Maybe, but it could result in you losing the position or ending up on their back but you on back.
    Safer just to take a lower mount and when they turn just take their back while still being on top.

    The feeling of flattening someone out who doesnt know anything in a street fight is just soo good. You end up with scratched up gravel-knees though

    I think those vids outline a good basic strategy for using your bjj in a fight. Drilling that would be pretty handy. Wish our club that sometimes.
