    Great video!

    Love the detail on grabbing under the armpit for the shoulder of justice, by the way. I actually picked up the same detail from Roger's old Nemesis, John Olav Einemo. It adds immense pressure.

    Off topic, but did you make it over to the UK and take some privates with Roger?

    Thanks for the mount vid

    What is the purpose of comments such as this? Some guy takes the time out of his day to analyze Roger Gracie competition matches and extract the techniques utilized therein and when he posts it, you pipe up with some smartass comment about how he's not really Roger Gracie or he's not even a black belt or whatever you were trying to imply. BS like that is just irksome and contributes nothing to discussion forums.

    Thank you!

    When I've been getting in side control I've been working exclusively on transitions to Mount and to Knee on Belly. I haven't been looking for finishes from side control as I usually do. My percentage on getting to mount successfully has been somewhere around 50% so this should help me immensely.

    Keep up the great work.

    Thanks a lot!

    I've been experimenting with crossing my opponent's legs. Still having a rough time getting the legs crossed -- might not be using enough shoulder pressure. I've been using it a bit differently but I like how you use it to lift the inside arm.

    Great video.

    Yeah, you don't usually expect such trolling from someone who's been here for over 5 years (and 3.5K+ posts.) Then again...his name IS Darth Shlong...so how much witticism and intelligence can you expect?

    Oh yeah, well done TD! I usually do something similar (by accident most likely) but there are a couple of very nice details here that I'll be working on tonight!!

    I'm running through your whole program on the Tube - You teach better than many famous competitors when it comes to basic principles because you don't take for granted that the student knows this and that.

    Cool, BJJ guys are starting to use wrestling's cradle to pass and transition. Nice details on the mount part and crawling your hand up the mat to control that arm. Good technique.

    Good video and some new details from the Shawn Williams explanation.

    Actually there's no cradle involved.
