Mount Escapes

There are few worse positions in all of combat sports or self-defense than being stuck underneath someone’s mounted position.  From a self-defense perspective this is one of the best positions to learn how to escape.

The mounted position is a popular and effective offensive position in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo and Mixed Martial Arts. Learning how to deal with a trained opponent who may know the proper way to distribute their weight and be effective with punches from the this position can be overwhelming.

A few defensive concepts can go a long way against an untrained attacker, but the most effective approach to dealing with bad situations is to take a consistent approach to learning self-defense by attending a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, self-defense or other martial arts class which addresses these situations from the perspective of both a trained and untrained opponent.

Self-defense techniques like escaping someone holding you down is something that even lifelong martial artists, law enforcement and everyday people hope to never have to use, but the reality is, if you need to defend yourself, you want to be able to remain calm and mentally collected and be in the know when it comes to what to do in an unexpected situation.

Check out this video on concepts and strategies about the “do’s and don’ts of escaping the mounted position.

You can learn more about escaping the mounted position by checking out Força Martial Arts & Fitness – Russellville on YouTube or by creating an account for our member site at

Team LDMA founder and head coach Danny Dring was recently awarded his 4th degree Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Maceio, Brazil from his Instructor Toni DePontes Emanuel.

Master Dring is a life long Martial Artist and holds the ranks of 8th degree Black Belts in Taekwondo and with Bill Wallace in the Superfoot System. Mr. Dring also holds the ranks of 7th Degree Black Belts in the Joe Lewis Fighting System and in Weeping Style Jujutsu.

Master Dring was also the first Arkansan promoted to the rank of black belt in the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has since grown Team LDMA into an association of martial arts academies spanning across the United States.

Força Martial Arts traces their lineage through the Inferno Martial Arts System to Master Dring.  Força head coaches, Brian and Cora Wilson, both hold rank in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Master Dring and Mr. Kaleb Plank, owner of Inferno Martial Arts in Northwest Arkansas.

Master Dring will be leading the next rank review at Força Martial Arts on Thursday, November 2, 2017.  Team LDMA Rank Reviews are not a formal martial arts testing but a review and demonstration of knowledge facilitated by instructors and led by all the ranks in attendance

Kids will begin at 5:30pm followed by adults at 7:00pm on Thursday evening.  All youth and adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes will be cancelled, but Fitness Kickboxing and Youth MMA and Boxing classes will be held at their normal times.  Please let your instructor know if you will be attending this team event.
