BJJ mount escape that works against anyone… is it really possible?
Bernardo Faria is again here with Xande Ribeiro, one of the most accomplished BJJ fighters in the history of the sport.
In this video, Xande shows us an interesting concept of mount escape in BJJ with game-changing details, that will work on anyone. It comes from his concept of the diamond defense.
If you like that concept, make sure you check another video by Xande: Escape From Any Side Control.
One of the first things that Xande points out in this video is, how to prepare for escape?
The most important thing to do is to create a little bit of space. He recommends putting both hands on one of the opponent’s hips, and executing small movements at first to make space and distance from his hips.
The rest you’ll just have to watch, maybe even several times, because it’s not that easy to transcribe into words. 🙂 Good luck!
