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
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 watch video >>
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 watch video >>
A basic escape for when your opponent is in Kesa Gatame with their arm around your head. This can be a difficult position to escape when your opponent is skilled and knows how to distribute their weight. It is important to get your pelvis to your opponents lower back and control the belt. The grip on the belt will help when to make space between your opponents butt and the floor when you bridge into them. It is important to bridge strongly to make your opponent base that hand. If your oppon watch video >>
This reversal is a great option for when your opponent is staying VERY tight and has his hand placed next to your hip so that recomposing Guard is not an option. This is a very high percentage move, even against people who are larger than you, when done correctly. The most difficult part is the timing and needs a good bit of practice. Other points of difficulty include pushing with your elbow and not the palm of your hand and making sure to get that far shoulder off the floor. Sometimes this watch video >>
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 watch video >>
Moving into the Side Control position I briefly discuss the different type of hand grips and body positions in Side Control. I then explain how to get into the "one pec theory" position and how to maintain control. After discussing how to maintain control I show a basic submission, the Paper Cutter. This submission relies on good body pressure and when you practice this you should remember to roll up onto your opponent and never let your hips or knees touch the floor (for the setup). Make su watch video >>
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.

This video is a follow up option to the Far Side Armbar. It works really well when your opponent is waiting to rip their back to the floor during your rotation to the far side. This technique is not used often because of it's tendency to give up position when it doesnt work. I address this problem, and increase the effectiveness of the submission by leaving that pocket with my butt when I "fall back". This pocket will give you the opportunity to enforce that distance with your shin and do a watch video >>
This is an intermediate to advanced submission that can be used when your opponent pushes you away in Side Control or Kesa Gatame. The closer to the hips that you control the larger the pocket will be for your knee to lead in at the armpit. Make sure to base off the hand that is next to the hips and the foot that is based on the foot. This should resemble the feeling of a technical standup. Once you elevate your hips it should be a really easy transition. Make sure that you insert the shin watch video >>
