A basic escape/transition from Side Control into Guard (Half or Full). Remember to only attempt this move when your opponent does NOT have the hand next to your hip. This works really well with the people that control over your body, under your shoulder and drive their shoulder into your face. This is a very common (and uncomfortable) position. When this happens try to make as much space as possible with your hips. Your opponents shoulder in the face can make getting a lot of space diffic

A basic side control escape that focuses on the fundamentals (body angle, hand placement and hip movement).

I personally believe that there is no better place for the hand then in the underhook position. If you place that hand at the front of the armpit it eliminates many of your opponents submission options and can set you down the path of success.

Keep in mind that it is important to move your hips away from your opponent while trying to get your head inside the arm that is cross facing you more

An intermediate escape that works well when your opponent is controlling over the body and is not chalking the hip.

It is important to control at the back of the triceps. This will allow you to control the biceps when you spin out the other side and it also is a good place to place your hand to avoid being submittied.

Continue to practice this move until you are good at coming out at the 90 degree angle. So many people when they do this move come out at 180 degrees (straight on with their op more

Another option from Side Control where your opponent is to tight for you to enter with the pummel. This is my go to escape and I have a lot of success with this.

Remember that when you get the forearm wedged between your body and their face it is important to lift with the elbow NOT the forearm. If you lift with the elbow it insures that your hand will be lower than the elbow and you can maintain that pressure upwards while rotating the hand into the armpit.

If you have not practiced "revers more

Another basic Mount escape that focuses on fundamental hip movement. When doing this techniques it's important to remember that the power comes from the hips (like many of the other videos that I have posted) and not from pushing with the arms.

Remember to straighten the correct leg (see video for details) and get to your side as soon as possible.

If you have trouble getting your leg back through to compose full guard remember to move stretch or arch your back. This will give more space f 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 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 basic Butterfly Guard Pass called Control The Ankle and Flatten Out.

I learned this when I was a white belt and I still use the concepts a lot in my passing game. The idea of controlling your opponents legs with one arm by gripping the far pant leg and then flattening out will be an invaluable skill to have at the higher levels.

The first, and most overlooked piece, is to bring your opponents ankles close to their butt and then to squeeze with your knees. I will almost more

In this video I show a very sneaky and effective move from the Half Guard. Although this move is labeled a sweep it walks a fine line between sweep and reversal. The ruling between sweep and reversal will depend on if you use your legs, if your opponent actually accepts the bottom position (as opposed to staying in Turtle) and how good the referee is.

This can be a great option against an opponent that has heavy hips. In the video I show to feed your opponents belt but I have also seen it ta more

This is one of my very best sweeps. I developed this when I was a purple belt and I've spent the last 5 years perfecting it. Hopefully this 6 minute video can pass on some of the finer points.

The first thing that I like to point out is that my game is VERY underhook dependent. I understand that the Darce is a very common submission attempt and that is why I named this move The Anti Darce but in reality this move can be used any time your opponent takes an overhook.

When your opponent start more
