In this video I show a simple yet effective way to escape the back control. This escape works well when used in conjunction with your other back escapes. When used alone it can become very easy to counter and can lead to mild success. Keep in mind that this escape is best preformed when your opponent has a double over grip. When your opponent has a Seatbelt Grip or a Double Under Grip it can be very difficult to get your hips to shrimp away. Notice I Reverse Shrimp until I fall into

In this video I show a basic escape from the back called the Monkey Grip.

As you can notice from the video the grip is not symmetrical. This is the first video in the two part series where it shows how to defend to the side with the hand contoured to the neck. Check back in to the channel to see how to defend to the other side.

Most importantly I discuss the concepts of back escaping. There is no more important concept than "if my back is on the floor then my opponent is not on my back". more

In this video I show a way to escape the back position by keeping both arms tight and scooting away (or a version of a reverse shrimp).

The first, and most important thing about this move, is that you protect that space under your armpits. I refer to the hand positioning as "Home Alone Hands" in the kids class and it just carried over into the adults. This is so important to this move that not only will you not be able to do it if they have a grip under your armpit, but attempting this move w more

In this video I show a very simple way to finish from the back. This is the Basic Lapel Choke from the back or the Clock Choke from the back.

When performing this technique it is important to remember the concepts that we have learned from the previous videos. Keep that pocket in the back and after setting up your grips keep your fulcrum stationary and move the elbow behind the shoulder.

When initially setting up this submission I find it helps to start from double under grips. This gives more

In this video I show a common submission from the back the Short Choke. This is a great option for when your opponent is tough to finish and you're having problems feeding the second hand in for the Rear Naked Choke (RNC).

Let me start off by saying that the Short Choke can be a vicious choke. Depending on how it is taught, where your forearm is and the intensity at which you go for it you may find yourself losing friends at the academy. Keep this in mind while both repping it out and while more

In this video I show how to dominate your opponent from the back position and then finish with an armbar.

There are many ways to successfully armbar your opponent from the back. In this video I show how to do it off of the T-Grip or the Kimura grip. This is a great starting armbar from the back for students that have not developed the proper hip movement to finish with some of the other variations.

I really like this variation because of the domination that the hand grip provides. It frees more

In this video I show an alternate setup for the Arm Triangle. Everything about the submission is the same but requires a little more control over your body and a smoother transition between Side Control on one side to Side Control on the other.

This is a very common setup that all BJJ players should have. As I state in the video it works well against people who lift with their whole arm instead of just their elbow.

Try your best not to "hop" during this transition and focus on being smooth a more

In this video I show the next logical move after you have obtained a deep underhook. Having a deep underhook opens up the pathway to the back!

There are plenty of ways to finish coming out on the back, in this video I show one way to do it. I emphasize pulling my opponent back into me instead of hipping up and over. I have heard that by having that hook in you hare "half way to the back" but in reality that hook is as much of a liability as it is a benefit. If you take the back the way th more

In this video I show my favorite escape from the Omoplata submission. This is a high percentage escape and can leave you in a great position when your opponent was feeling comfortable.

The first step is to control the inside of your thigh. This will lock up your shoulder and your torso and usually give you enough time to post your free hand on the floor. Once you put your hand on the floor it is important to start basing back into your opponent and put your foot on the floor.

Keep in mi more

In this video I show a very powerful choke the Bow and Arrow choke. This is one of those submissions that has many entries, is highly effective and used in high level competition.

A couple of important things to keep in mind

1. like all of the other videos that I have uploaded from the back it is a good idea to start with that pocket between the front of your hips and your opponents lower back. This allows you to have free movement with your legs and will make it much easier to set up s more
