How to Escape from a Mount Position in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Learn how to escape from mount position from Alliance MMA black belt Babs Olusanmokun in this Howcast Brazilian Jiu Jitsu video.

Escape from the mount position, the opponent has a hand on my throat. I grab him at the crook of his elbow, I now grab his shoulder, cinch my elbow down, so that he can’t yank his arm out. Try and pull your arm out, please Max.Keep his arm down and now I trap his ankle. This piece here sometimes I can do without it, okay, if I can’t find his ankle it’s no big deal. I just bridge off my toes, and I go over my shoulder, not to the side, over my shoulder, and that’s your escape from the mount.
