    The omoplata is a viable submission, but it's also frequently used as a sweep. Often times, you'll find yourself caught in the omoplata and faced with a choice to either give up position or give up the submission. While this is a no-brainer in general, there are ways to get out of the position entirely, largely contingent upon your skill at the escape itself, and your partner's reaction along the way. Here, we'll look at several viable escapes from the omoplata position, not just from the submission, and take a look at ways to improve your position once you escape.

    Good videos. An escape I use frequently is to put my feet in the armpits and stretch out to almost limp arm out. I use it in the first part of this video.
