In submission grappling, regardless of what style you favor, the goal is simple - finish your opponent as quickly as possible via submission or points. Your path to that submission or positional dominance typically involves getting past or avoiding your opponents guard and establishing a hold. Sometimes we find ourselves with the opportunity to attack via the mount/saddle position and others we can attack the back using our hooks/leg rides. Now attacking the back is common practice is submission grappling, but some grapplers just have a knack for getting to the position and finishing. It's often a helpless place that can often have you defending your neck and arms at a feverish pace. Check out Netinho Natal & Jhonata Carvalho's Luta Livre back attack series and soon enough you'll be the guy everyone avoids turtling up against.
