These moves shouldn’t really work. But for some reason, they are actually pretty effective. My friend Brandon McCaghren, 10th Planet Black Belt who runs 10P Decatur, Alabama launched a Fake News BJJ movement recently, showcasing techniques that shouldn’t work but somehow they do. That inspired me to contribute to this idea by making a full YouTube video on the subject because there are so many interesting and contradictory views on what works, what should work and could work.
This is one of my favorite side control escapes, because of how useful it is and how many back-up plans exist in the sequence, this escape can also lead you directly into a couple of different potential submission opportunities. My favorite thing if I hit this escape is to look for the Darce choke. Let me know what you think!
