U.S. Army Combatives – FM 3-25.150

3-02 Front Mount


The front mount (Figure 3-2) is dominant because it allows the fighter to strike the enemy with punches without the danger of effective return punches, and also provides the leverage to attack the enemy’s upper body with joint attacks. Knees are as high as possible toward the enemy’s armpits. This position should be held loosely to allow the enemy to turn over if he should try.
