side mount escapes.
hey guys, do you all still remember the side mounts escape? can Daniel shared the drill here again and the mindset of side mount again? it is a topic that I am interested in, my weakest link is my side mount.
So first things first, DEFENSE is the most crucial part of having an effective and efficient escape. Like Ryron and Rener mentions every time, when you're in an inferior position the first thing we wanna learn is to learn how not to escape as trying to escape prematurely will give the BG a chance of advancing their position.
What we wanna do is to have such a powerful defense that we make the BG advance their controls or attacks to give us an opportunity/window of escape.
So 100% Focus on Defense. Then 100% to Escape when the opportunity is given. The problem usually is we're not sure when to escape or when to defend.
This is possible with the SAFE HANDS technique from BBS1 S.M Escapes - Lesson 16
