Tag Archives: back control

A fighter is in back control, a fundamental grappling position, when his opponent's back is facing the fighter's chest. This is a very advantageous position to obtain because the opponent can't see, strike at or defend against the attacker; he's at the fighter's mercy. However, back control is not a submission hold; instead, it is a position from which to transition and perform other techniques or strikes. Competitors can execute back control from any position, regardless of whether the opponent is prone, supine, seated or turtled. A fighter can further secure his position by using grapevines or underhooks. If the opponent is prone, the position also can be referred to as a "back mount."
