Class #936
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 21/12/2017

Matt H had some handy details on both footlock escapes and passing today. For escaping, tuck your other leg underneath and stand, then push their heel off to escape single x. Good to have a simple straight ankle lock escape when you can't grab the collar.

For the over under, Matt recommends a baseball bat grip on their leg. Dive into the over under, head clamped to their hip, elbows tight to avoid underhooks and kimura. Move to non head side, step over leg. Keep moving that way until their leg is straight. Then move back the other way, until you can easily kick your leg free, backstep (Saulo vid shows that, though he doesn't do all the careful sideways movement). Knee tight under that leg you've just cleared, progressing into side control.

On the kneebar Kev showed, stay extra tight. Swivel and spin from standing: I found it felt more secure with my leg right under. Don't be too high, stay close to their hips. Like an armbar, you don't want to be too far from the shoulder.
