Even when you are struggling to dominate the shoulder, you can still catch your opponent with a Fireman’s carry. A good Fireman’s carry gets your opponent’s feet off the mat quickly, so that they can’t work to counter you or put you into compromising positions like a back crucifix.
It is used well when you can get your opponent driving into you, so you can fall underneath them and make them load themselves on their shoulder. A key point here is to make sure you use your arm controlling the over hook to control their triceps and pull down on it hard. That will help get them to dump on top of you and get their feet off the mat.

To become the best, we must continuously test ourselves. We measure our performance, evaluate our faults, accept criticism and then work on improving ourselves before starting all over again.
