Back Take with Shoulder Roll from Mount

So, let’s say you’ve mounted your opponent. This is one he definitely won’t see coming. The first technique Garry shows us is if your opponent feeds into it by attempting to recover guard and then when he’s not very active. Either way, it’s a slick move that will definitely catch him off guard.

Garry starts mounted on his opponent. This first action is reactive to what his opponent gives him. A typical escape from the mount would have the guy on the bottom bending one knee, and one straight looking to recover to at least half-guard.

Once he’s in half-guard Garry puts weight on his opponent’s leg by sitting back. If he allows his opponent to get flat on his back it makes things much more difficult.

At this point Garry can lock up a figure four with his own legs, this is great if he can get it, but what’s more important is keeping weight on his opponent and starting the roll as quickly as he can.

Garry begins his roll by tucking his head and rolling his right shoulder to the mat. Little tip here, Garry always reaches for the feet so he knows which way to roll.

Alternate

If Garry’s opponent isn’t trying to recover and really isn’t giving him anything, all Garry needs is one knee bent. In that case, he’ll bring one leg through the bent knee and force his opponent onto his side with his weight. From there, he would go straight to Step 2 and then finish the rest of the technique.
