Houston Alexander: Mount Escapes-Training Log

Posted on Updated on

After watching Houston Alexander and Silva fight last night, I saw the light.  Cringing inside as I watched a dominant fighter succumb to punches from the mount led me to think about my own mount defense.

So to bolster my defense I practiced mount escape drills and will incorporate it more often in my training. For the past few days I also have been drilling butterfly guard. I hope I can use it in class on Tuesday. I have been trying to use it in class lately and have been getting stuffed pretty quickly.

Oh yeah, I found a track about a mile from my house this week. So this morning I went up there; stretched, jogged/walked a mile and then ran sprints on the football field.

Check out my new books, The Lazy Man’s Guide to Grappling and Grappling for Newbies on Amazon.com!

    Of course you have to modify techniques according to whatever style of martial art or grappling you practice (gi, no-gi, MMA, etc.) I put this up for grapplers and anyone else who visits the site.
