The North South position in BJJ can be tough to escape.
If you think of Guard as having our hips in front of our opponent. North South is literally the opposite. They’re about as far away from the hips as they can be without getting up and running away.
This in turn can make it difficult to regain a decent position from the bottom.
This is why it can be such an awesome position for Guard Passers against long legged grapplers.
Circle towards the head and get to North South and you’re further away from those legs!
But what if you’re the person on the bottom of North South. What can you do?
Well in this video I share two North South escapes you can use in Brazilian Jiujitsu.
We’ll pay close attention to avoiding some basic submissions from the position and explore 2 escape techniques that are executed from different styles of North South.
If you’re getting stuck in this position then I hope these techniques are useful!
