What is the best way to escape a Scarfhold style side control in BJJ?
This is the Brazilian Jiu-jitsu question from Jack on Instagram. And in this video I share a way to escape the Scarfhold type Side Control position that comes up often.
The Scarf Hold position is also considered a modified version of Kesa Gatame can be tough to escape if you aren’t familiar with it.
The way you escape Scarfhold will vary from a traditional Side Control.
In this video I try to explain some of the differences to give a better idea as to how to escape when faced with this position in Brazilian Jiujitsu.
I also show a escape to Armbar. The Armbar can happen when you’re opponent doesn’t let go of the arm that’s got an Underhook.
If you training Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and are having trouble with this position. Hopefully this video is helpful!
