Upa Escape
(Mounted, with Gi)

A Technique from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Courtesy bjjfighter.com

These techniques should only be practiced with the supervision of an experienced instructor.
Practicing the moves incorrectly could result in serious bodily injury or death.

My opponent has me in the mounted position.
I begin by pulling my opponent down and wrapping his left arm. I then make sure my right foot is on the outside of his.
I then bridge up onto my shoulders, lifting my hips high as possible.
I then roll to my right, because I have my opponent's leg and arm blocked off he cannot base out to prevent the escape.
After the roll I end up in my opponent's guard.
I then sit up and secure good posture within the guard.
