Xande teaches two ways to maintain your back control though early or late prevention. The first lesson covers how to use your hooks to readjust back control to prevent your opponent from putting their shoulders and hips on the mats. The second lesson covers how to re-establish the back when your opponent has defeated both hooks but you still have the seatbelt control. In this chair sit motion to retake the back, we maintain close contact to our opponent and slide our knee up to take the back again.

Xande teaches some of the fundamental concepts on how to control your opponent once you have mounted them including how to position your weight and how to transition to control your opponent even when they attempt to escape.
