I live my life a quarter mile at a time.

Sorry, I just got done rewatching "The Fast and the Furious" series and I thought I was Dominic Toretto. What I was trying to say was, in Jiu Jitsu I live my by one rule: punish whitebelts as much as possible. Not only is it fun, its entertaining, and I get to try ridiculous moves on them that would not work on anyone or anything else.

Check out this great shoulderlock from the mount, also know as a monoplata. You don't see it used too often 'cause it takes some flexibility and hip dexterity.  My feeling is that, if your already there, why not just go for the gogoplata Aoki style?  Anyway, you may recognize this from Aoki's course, but it's also seen in Eddie Bravo's books and TUF veteran and ADCC Champ Vinny Magalhaes'.  Take a look a LockDown MMA's monoplata and the total punishment of a whitebelt.
