Essential BJJ Side Control Submissions

Side control in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is hugely popular dominate position from which to attack from.  Allowing a multitude of attacking options on top of a hugely controlling pressure game makes working from here a common sight in all levels of grappling competition.  As with all positions, single attacks rarely work against high level opposition without the potential/implied threat of other dangers i.e. sweeps or submissions.  Therefore it is essential to have a framework or chain of BJJ side control submissions to increase your likelihood of getting the finish should your opponent look to defend/move against the initial attack.
