How Can I Get Better At Escapes From Side Control And Mount

 

I recently received a question from a BJJ White Belt. He asked how he can get better at escapes from side control and mount.

 

I’m pretty sure that this is the number 1 BJJ related question I get from white belts in the beginning. Because they lack the skills to be effective. They spend a lot of time in bad positions like side control and mount.

 

So in this video I give 4 tips that can a white belt in Brazilian jiu jitsu (or anyone really) can use to improve at escaping bad positions.

 

The tips are (starting with simplest to more in-depth):

 

-Learn to take a deep breath when you find yourself in bad positions during BJJ rolling.

 

-Focus on using the Brazilian Jiu-jitsu techniques you’ve learned rather than just pushing and shoving with no rhyme or reason.

 

-If open mat or extra free mat time is available. Had a partner attack you in your worst position.

 

-If time is not available or just another way to do it. Find someone you can beat and let them put you in the worst positions possible

 

As I share in this video. All of these tips have had a big impact on my game so I hope they help you as well if you’re struggling with escapes from side control and mount.

 

Thanks guys!
