If you have been watching Jiu-Jitsu or MMA for any stretch of time, you will be familiar with one of the most dominant positions in all of fighting. That position is The Mount. Your Legs are over your opponent’s torso, your weight is nice and low, they are DONE. It’s the classic Big Brother position, meaning that once you get someone their they should be HELPLESS. So how can we get there? This is where Bernardo Faria comes in.
Bernardo’s resume and accomplishments speak for themselves. The multiple time weight and absolute champion reached the pinnacle of Jiu-Jitsu with his dominant and stifling style. Bernardo has a way of explaining techniques like few other Jiu-Jitsu practitioners have been able to. You may be familiar with some of Bernardo’s other works such as “The Battle Tested Half Guard” and “Foundations of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu”. Faria’s instructionals bring a level of depth that is backed by over a DECADE of competition at the very highest level.
So why an instructional dedicated to the mount? By specifically focusing on this dominating position, you will find a new level skill that eludes many athletes. For the most part once the mount is obtained the fight should be OVER. That said, how many times have you witnessed the person on the bottom escape the mount by exposing their back, or combining a bump/roll with a well timed hip escape? If you have ever struggled to achieve the mount only to lose it, especially against a larger opponent, you know how disheartening it can be. BUT thanks to Bernardo Faria and his Encyclopedia of Mount Attacks, you will leave your opponent with no options but to SUBMIT.
Think about it for a second. How many world champions have there been? How many of those Champs continually train with EVERY top athlete in the game. How many times have you heard the Legendary “Okay Guys”? Only to watch Bernardo become Uke extraordinaire and absorb those techniques from these World Champions. Bernardo may be the most Well-Versed Jiu-Jitsu practitioner TODAY, and this is why the details Bernardo uncovers are so profound.
In this Jam Packed 4-part instructional, Bernardo unearths the details and strategies he has absorbed from his Unique Jiu-Jitsu experience. In each volume you will solidify your mount control and attacks. Bernardo goes DEEP into the methodology of the mount. The Mount Attack Encyclopedia isn’t just a mashup of Bernardo’s greatest hits. Bernardo starts the Mount Attack Journey by introducing the position and discussing the ins and outs of one of the most dominating positions in Jiu-Jitsu. By understanding what your goals are from The Mount you will be able to react PRECISELY to your opponent’s reactions.
f you are Mounted it is fairly obvious that you need to start moving immediately. If it was a street fight situation the person mounted couldn’t just stall out because then they could be easily hit. In Jiu-Jitsu, the reactions are fairly similar. Usually when mounted, a person will go through a mini crisis by bumping, turning, gripping, ripping, and pushing. In The Mount Attack Encyclopedia Bernardo prepares you for ALL of the most common reactions and escaping methods. The BEAUTY of The Mount is that you can become extremely responsive to these reactions which will lead you to the finish line on you opponent.
While Bernardo’s techniques are revolutionary some do not reinvent the wheel, instead they refine the classics with a sense of modernity. We all have seen the classic armbar from The Mount. By adding a little Faria spin on the technique the classic armbar becomes an all knew monster waiting to be unleashed on your opponent.
The Mount is great and everything but how do you get there? You guessed it, Bernardo’s got your back. Faria goes over several methods of obtaining this ENDGAME position. You also may have guessed that obtaining the mount from guard passing will require a little PRESSURE, which obviously Faria is no stranger to. Make your opponent suffer until they PREFER to get mounted!
If you are looking for a way to consistently put your opponent into Checkmate, then The Mount is what you are looking for. The Mount Attack Encyclopedia by Bernardo Faria contains the game plan that will allow you to Obtain The Mount, Keep The Mount, and Finish From The Mount!
