Having an opponent on your back is one of the most dangerous positions in all of Grappling. For many people this represents the final moments before being your opponent submitting you. The position is so dangerous because, essentially, your opponent has taken away your ability to attack them and at the same time, they have complete control over your entire body…
If you find yourself in this dangerous position, don’t panic; you will still have plenty of opportunities to escape. You just need to do it right…
It is not wise to be completely comfortable in this position, but you still have some high percentage escapes depending on how your opponent is attacking you.
Remember to always keep calm and don’t panic.
A position that is quite common is when your opponent is in your back and only has one hook in. What happens is that you will need to prevent them from inserting that second hook.
2019 ADCC bronze medalist & BJJ black belt Lachlan Giles shows a very effective way to prevent them from that second and putting yourself in a better position to escape.
