Mount: Reconciling Weight Distribution Ideas

Here’s an example of two Mount ideas seemingly conflicting, but going to play with both today, specifically what feels most comfortable when digging first hand in for a cross-collar choke:

Roger Gracie rests the weight of torso on top of the bottom player, flaring his knees to accentuate this pressure seen here @ 0:00-1:06:

Henry Akins on the other hand squeezes his knees together and raises his hips off the bottom player which facilitates quick adjustments to elbow escape attempts and nullification of bridge @ 9:40-13:37:

I’ll feel out and play with both today and report back at some point. Good fun. =)
