Learn N/S escapes from Team Radical MMA head coach Rene Dreifuss in this Howcast MMA video.

All right guys. Now. A couple more escapes. The North-South escape. All right. I have Chad in North- South. A Very bad position. A very bad position. There’s a lot of things I can do here. Elbow to the head. If it’s allowed, knee to the head. Knee to the shoulder. ultra submission. Boom. Chokes. Very bad. All right. So. I’m in North-South. The first thing Chad is going to do is he is going to pop up, to get his arms in the Pledge of Allegiance position. So here he pops, and on the down beat he puts his hand in this position. So I’m like this. Right. He gets his arm in. Now, he is gonna turn this way. Now this is very important guys, the footwork.

OK. Here. Don’t do this. Don’t do that. It’s very hard. Do this… ‘K. Watch Chad. He pops. Pledge of Allegiance. Slip your foot through. Now. Grab my legs. Now, he’s got the single leg. He’s gonna grab my foot and take me down. Drive it. OK. One more time. Pop. Pledge of Allegiance. Shoot up, and sit through. Come up and single leg. ‘K. Now. Look at his elbow. Do not do this with your elbow. ‘K. Watch. If he does that, that ? Here. Keep your elbow out. He grabs my foot. Drive. If I stay up, he pops out. Starts taking my back. Boom. Boom. Boom. Choke. Choke out. Right here. Finish him. OK. One more time. That’s the escape, North-South.
