    Default submissions from mount

    i relatively new to bjj and do it at an mma club not at a specialist club. i'm quite good at getting positions on the ground and have often ended up in mount only to give it up and go back to side control as i don't have any effective submissions (theres no striking, usually i would just G+P). Now im mainly just sticking in side control, controllling them and letting them waste their energy or waiting for them to give me their back so i can rear naked them.
    my question is has anyone else had this problem? what should i do? are their many effective submissions from mount? will i just learn more submissions as i progress and not to worry about it now?
    i should add the people i roll with are all very inexperienced as well and are all heavier than me. i'm around 10 stone, 5' 8''. the nearest guy is 11 stone 5' 10''. i'm quite flexible and "wriggly"(apperently i'm impossible to hold down and really annoying to grapple with) if that helps.

    as a beginner myself. I find the things guys do to me from mount is predominantly go for an armbar. Again as a beginner I find from mount I usually struggle to get an armbar, need to practice it more, my position before going for it lets me down (and wriggly people are a pain lol) , also been taught triangle from mount, can change that to a short arm bar half way through (I like that one but never managed it in rolling) , or a gogoplata (if I remember the name right), but I find if the guy sees it coming it's easy to get swept as you shift your weight to one side, or maybe I'm just too slow doing it lol.

    Side control rather than just hold them their with weight, use the weight to hold them and go for a key lock or kimura on the far side arm.

    All of this may be poor advice tbh, started MMA in Feb of this year, but due to work, and missing some sessions due to socialising, life stuff etc haven't done any Jits at all for the last 2 months or so (probably going to start doing privates in the new year to get the jits back on track) so I'm very much a beginner, just my own viewpoint if it helps from a fellow beginner.

    Arm bar should be the easiest on if its set up properly and not just done in a mad rush, even if the person is "wriggly"

    triangle or arm bar would be the best bet but like hassan said dont rush it

    americana is my personal fav but you can get rolled.
