Tech Factory - All Rights Reserved - Do Not copy without Permission.  The position starts with the opponent on your back with the hooks and trying to choke you.
Tech Factory - All Rights Reserved - Do Not copy without Permission.  With both hands, grab the opponents arm that is closer to your neck and you will relieve the pressure of the choke so you will have time to do the escape.
Tech Factory - All Rights Reserved - Do Not copy without Permission.  With the choke pressure relieved, bridge to the opposite side of your opponents elbow ( of the same arm you are holding ) and put your head on the floor and begin to move your hips out to the opposite side of the choke.
Tech Factory - All Rights Reserved - Do Not copy without Permission.  If you do everything above, the choke pression will be totally relieved so release just one grip ( of the grips you were using to relieve the choke pression ) of the same side of your opponents arms that is closer to your neck and transfer the grip to the pants next to the foot. This grip will help you to release one hook and avoid that your opponent gets the mounted position. Do not release the other grip of the choke, this grip will avoid any choke attempt.
Tech Factory - All Rights Reserved - Do Not copy without Permission.  With one hook released and the grip of the pants done, keep moving your hips out over the other hook. So with that move both hooks were released. Do not release the pants grip untill the position is finished.
Tech Factory - All Rights Reserved - Do Not copy without Permission.  After you release both hooks, do a scissors movement ( on the direction of your opponents feet ) and try to turn above your opponent. Now the other grip that was on the opponents arm can be released.
Tech Factory - All Rights Reserved - Do Not copy without Permission.  After doing the scissors movement, the hand that now is free will enter below your opponent's leg and after that you must release the other grip that was holding the pants and transfer to under your opponents head.If you do not release this grip now you can be caught in a triangle or your opponent can move his hips out trying to get your back again.
