Americana (Keylock) From Side Mount


I keep forgetting to post about attacks from Side Mount, so here's the most basic of basic offensive moves from Side Mount- the Americana, or Keylock.

From TrainFightWin.com:



Some important things to note:

Make sure you have your weight on the guy's torso, not your knees.

The usual headgrab the person on bottom does is a perfect setup for the armbar as well, which I prefer.

Don't start yanking as soon as you get the Fig-4 lock on. Bring that elbow close in before cranking that keylock.

Happy Training
