This pair of videos was just what I was looking for to flesh out our mat wrestling. The bottom wrestling, featuring the changeover as a centerpiece, creates a cohesive response to all the major rides. The main auxiliary position he shows is the classic Peterson technique out of a head post, which is also a position to seek when countering leg, crab and claw rides. The suggested top wrestling features the chop, but with a worthwhile nuance; instead of the tight-waist to control the hip, he focuses the technique with a thigh-pry. I think this a very worthwhile shift in emphasis that can help the top man's pressure. The rest is some interesting Turk and leg variations from the back-leg and cross-wrist positions. All in all, a great set of techniques to help keep the pressure on the bottom opponent.
