Well, well, well. What do we have here… You’re in trouble again, aren’t you? You’ve given up your back, your opponent took it, placed their hooks in and is working on a choke. You are pretty much done for in this situation, right?
Well, you most likely are. But that doesn’t mean you should give up! BJJ is all about giving it your best and not giving up until there’s absolutely no way out (unless you are just training and rolling with your training partners – in that case, tap early and tap often), so you definitely need to give your best shot at escaping from this dire situation as well.
Coach Tom Davey has a great escape that is perfect for BJJ white belts because it is simple and yet so effective:
