Honestly I have a few things I do but they never work. My instructors have shown me several escapes in class but I can't get any of them to work with serious top pressure on me. The 2 I go for are try to frame and get back to guard(which works like 1 out of 100 times for me lol) or get an undertook and get back to my knees, but honestly I have no or almost no skill at this part of bjj, all my other areas are solid, I can even tap blue belts sometimes but if I get put flat on my back I have no answer for that. Can I post videos here? I could post the match I had and you can see. Honestly not my best work but you will see that I don't understand the concepts of it. I've seen tons of escapes but can never pull them off, all the other areas of bjj I was taught concepts and am able to execute those most of the time.Bunch of stuff I can do on that topic. Hopefully you are learning at least some of the fundamental side control escapes at your school and of course there are tons of escape technique videos on YouTube already. But I'll try to put together a couple of videos on some concepts that don't always get explained as well as they could be.
What are your go-to techniques that you currently try when you are caught in side control?
