S Mount cradle choke and armbar

After warming up with a couple takedowns, we drilled a knee-on-belly move where we flow from side to side in response to a moving opponent.

At some point, we would settle in behind our opponent pinning him with our chest. From there, securing the open mount is the natural move.

In open mount, the cradle choke (sometime called bow-and-arrow) is a powerful finish.

The armbar is, of course, an equally strong option.  Coach talked about stepping your leg over bottom's head and keeping it straight and sitting to that hip.  This eliminated a lot space that bottom could use to escape.
