Half Guard -> Escape -> Breakdown Opponent -> Side Control

  • Hero is in R Half Guard on R Hip
  • Hero R Leg UH -> Opp R Leg; Hero R Foot hooks Over Back of Opp R Calf
  • Hero L Leg OH Opp R Leg
  1. Hero R + L Leg/Knees sqeeze together and push/pull Opp L and up towards Hero Head; (AST) Hero R Arm drives -> Opp L Armpit
    • This is to get Opp to post R Arm -> Hero L above Hero L Shoulder
  2.  Hero switches hips hard -> Hero R Hip (AST) Hero L Arm -> Opp R back deep
  3. Hero gets into a smaller ball, gets head out from Opp R armpit and Hero L Arm OH -> Opp R Leg
    • getting head out is critical to escape
  4. Hero R Leg releases hook and goes -> inside of Opp R Leg
  5. Hero L Ankle/Shin slides -> under Opp R Ankle and drives Opp R Ankle hard -> R
    • this is also critical as it torques Opp Knee -> R which will help force movemnt of Opp

  7. Hero R ankle -> under Hero L ankle
    • this cross helps secure Opp R Leg

  10. Hero R Hand -> OH Opp R Inner Thigh
