If you ever get into an altercation with someone and the fight goes to the ground, you’ll need special techniques to get the upper hand.
In that case, a great self-defense technique is mounting your attacker. However, there is a certain way to mounting your attacker, and if done well, it can put you at a great advantage.
Our video on How to Mount an Attacker in a Street Fight shows you all the best pointers and self-defense tips that are sure to come in handy.
One of the most important things to remember is when mounting your attacker, you don’t want to be putting your legs on each side of your opponent. By doing so, you are giving him the advantage to grab onto one of your legs and get the upper hand by flipping you over.
Or even worst, if you do manage to strike out your opponent, his weight can crash down your leg underneath them and trapping you. This is the worst-case scenario, because imagine if he is with others, then if you’re trapped under your opponent, while his friends can come and knock you out easily.
To see an example for this self-defense technique, refer to the video below:
That being said, the best way to mount your attacker is by keeping both your legs on one side and lifting one of your legs to rest on your opponent’s chest. This keeps your attacker down and gives you the opportunity to strike him easily. It also gives you the advantage of being able to escape rather easily once you have eliminated the danger.
