Create Heavier Top Pressure To Squish Your Opponent (Even If You’re Not That Heavy)

When larger BJJ practitioners put you in side control, they make it seem so easy to just squish the heck out of you. If your numbers on the scale are a bit lower and you want to have top pressure like a heavyweight, you may feel a bit jealous. Holding your opponent in place for as long as you want would be so much easier if you were, like, 70 lbs heavier, right?

Thankfully, like many techniques in jiu-jitsu, you can overcome this barrier with the right technique. In this video, Chewy of Chewjitsu provides a few tips to improve your bodyweight awareness, and by effect, your top pressure while on the mats.
