"Knowing how to escape from underneath someone is one of the most important aspects of knowing how to defend yourself.
The confidence that comes from being able to escape someone's control over you is priceless.
The No.1 most important thing when underneath somebody is your ability to stay safe.
Once you feel safe escape opportunities will appear.
There are many ways to escape from underneath the mount.
My favorite is the Trap and Roll.
It takes me from the bottom to the top in the fastest amount of time and it allows me to escape when someone is striking or trying to submit me.
In this video you can see me managing the distance as I wait for an opportunity to trap one arm and one leg.
Spend some time in the bottom of the mount.
Better yet, spend some time practicing the Trap and Roll,
it will save your life."
