Poughkeepsie BJJ coach Brian McLaughlin shows how to transition from the mount to the back utilizing the gift wrap position. The gift wrap, originally popularized by Rickson Gracie, is an excellent control position for both sport grappling and mixed martial arts. McLaughlin credits his coach coach and fellow BJJ Black Belt Rob Kahn with originally teaching him the outstanding transition.
Here’s a quick transition from side control right into a lethal guillotine choke.
