Mune Gatame | Side Control
Mune Gatame or Side Control. An effective pin-down with submission opportunities.
Mune actually means chest and side is Yoko, so the technical translation is Chest Hold. This technique is a good pin but and one of the best half-way positions from switching between other positional controls. Mune Gatame is required for an 8th Kyu (Yellow belt) promotion and is a foundation technique required for groundwork.
