what a coincidence...this month we have been focusing on side control escapes and this is one of the fundamental movements we have been doing. Typically when the guy has switched his base and has one hip on the floor and is laying across your hip
there's a ton of things the top guy can do to prevent it but that's perfect because it leads into other escapes even if you don't hit the sit up sweep (say for example he rolls to his knees or switches his base when you go for it) good, quickly transition into a bridging escape
I can already tell this particularly sweep requires huge amounts of practice in live sparring so you are prepared for the possible reactions from your opponent
look up get ups from rat guard
We had Paul Schriner one of the instructors at MGA for a seminar and he taught this series. Its become my go to escape against a tight side control when trying to shrimp and get a knee in is impossible. It works great and eliminates all that frustration.
If you control the outside arm with a 2 on 1 grip, you are safe, there is no way they can submit you from side control with only one arm. People who get really good at it, like Marcelo or Paul make you feel like having them in side control is unsafe even though you are in a dominant position, that 2 on 1 is so powerful.
