Getting stuck under your opponent's side mount is the number 1 problem that most Gracie Barra white belt students report. This week, we have a tutorial on how to escape one of the most difficult side control variations - the scarf hold variation when your opponent has an under hook.
Pay Attention To : Prof. Victor draws our attention to the position of his inside arm - the arm closest to the opponent. This is the key to the top person controlling the scarf hold position. Prof Victor must make sure his elbow is on the ground and not pulled up by the opponent.
