Escaping The Mount With The Basic Elbow Escape – 2015 PANAM Breakdown – The Ace of Escapes

Do you have trouble escaping from Side Control, Mount, and Back?
Let’s be honest… most of us do 🙁
You know why? Because those positions are built to be hard to escape from in the first place.
They are the most DOMINANT positions in Jiu Jitsu, and if it was easy to escape from them, Jiu Jitsu wouldn’t be considered as one of the most effective Martial Arts there is.
That’s the cold hard truth. Your opponent has leverage and gravity on his side.
Have you ever felt so STUCK under those positions that you actually considered giving up, even though your opponent had no submission hold in place?
I know I have… I went through that many times during my White and Blue Belt days.
Escaping from dominant positions is not about knowing dozens of techniques, it’s about learning how to stay cool under pressure, how to stay comfortable under those uncomfortable positions.
Once you learn that, the next step is organizing all the information, connecting the techniques together in a predictable system, and executing with a solid plan.
That’s what The Ace Of Escapes is all about, laying down the foundation that every Jiu Jitsu practitioner needs to know: how to survive, defend, and escape from bad positions.
