February 15 314th class

Coached a rather large class today, in fundamentals. Taught the second side control escape, when the opponent is blocking the hip with his hand. The escape honestly works wonders for me, and I definitely like teaching it. 

I've discovered two things that work for myself quite well. From closed guard, try to bring one arm across. When they pull their arm back, use that momentum for a sweet hip bump sweep. Don't fight the movement :-) Secondly, I see a little shift back to the mount as my favourite position, both the technical and the S-Mount. The armlocks and transitions to the back are quite plentiful from there.
