Counter to Americana from Mount


This finish to this move is kind of hard to see in the video, but is something I can best describe as a modified Americana/Inverted Armlock.

-The opponent attains mount and has an Americana with a nice, tight grip, and is about to finish it.

-You of course, would rather not tap/get your arm broken, so you decide to move. Keep your feet nice and tight.

(Opponent leaves space between his head and your chest)
-Shoot your hand through that space and grab your own wrist as well as his fingers.

(Opponent has left no space)
-Roll over and grab your wrist and his fingers over his head.

-Keep the grip tight and roll over to the other side. As you pull with your outer hand, he will feel an incredible strain on his shoulder/elbow.

I'm going to try this one out on Sunday.

PS- thank you for the emails of concern regarding my move and my health. Appreciated.
