Quick video today…

The gift wrap is one of the strongest controls from the mount. It offers several different attacks and puts your opponent in a very dangerous position, no matter if it’s sport or a self-defense scenario.

The triangle choke is probably my favorite attack from the gift wrap position, because it keeps me on top. Sometimes when going for the armbar instead, if we lose the submission we often lose the top position, ending up on bottom playing guard, and that could be very dangerous if it’s a self-defense scenario.

Anyways, give it a try and let me know how it goes!
