Side control is a terrible place to be in Jiu-Jitsu especially if you have Roger Gracie on top of you….
Details… There’s simply never enough of them! Each and every little tidbit can help you improve your game by a substantial margin; and this is equally true for escapes, submissions and positions alike.
Therefore, let’s place our attention at how to improve a really important position… The Side Control!
The side control position is undoubtedly one of the best attack and submission positions in Jiu Jitsu. When you reach this position, you have certainly managed to gain a huge advantage because, most of the time for you to reach side control, you need to have passed the guard of your opponent, or to have swept them and already falling into side control.
The most curious thing is that even though it is such a basic, common and well-known position in Jiu Jitsu, there are still people who feel lost when they reach the side of their opponents, with no idea what to do from there …
If your training partners or opponents tend to turtle up, then you might want to force them into Side Control… Here’s how to do it in a gi, as demonstrated by Roger Gracie on the video below:
