    How do I do this? I've had it taught to me, however it realllly needs practice and I'm trying to find a video of it, or some form of instructional as I'm not really nailing it much.
    I turtle alot when I'm being passed and it would be really good to implement sit-outs to escape the sprawl and such...

    Cheers

    I don't have much success with my sit-out either. Seem to get stuck about halfway. Should I be trying to go more forward or to the side?

    Two key points with the sitout:

    First, it works like magic off the sprawl where his legs are back, but it does not work well when his knees are forward. Grab at his knees for the double leg to get him to sprawl; THEN go for the sitout. The biggest key is to work between the double leg and the sitout. If his knees are close, hit the double. If he sprawls back, sitout. No shelter.

    Second, you have to commit fully. Explode into it. Focus less on getting out and more on ramming his face into the mat. He'll let go.

    Thanks Zankou, I will make a note of that. Never thought to switch between the sitout and double-leg.

    Yeah, I used to have problems with this until John Machado showed me how this works. If you just keep trying the sitout, they will bring their knees up, and then you can't get it. You need to get them to do a full sprawl in order for the sitout to be powerful.

    Also that elbow has really got to go high, I forgot about that part. The elbow is what you're pushing him with.

    I use it with about a 95% rate of success. Like mentioned above you just have to go fully commited. It just works. Dont even think about it not working, and just go! :)

    i do the sit out from the turtle when im in bad position. going left -- i put my left leg up, then shoot my left arm back (as if you were reaching for a gun or something) and slide your right leg through and take the back. all in one motion will get you good momentum to take the back. if it doesnt work right youll still end in better position then turtle

    The above video is actually one of mine.

    Once you get the sitout down, here's a very useful choke. It also works standing when you have 1 arm in and 1 out.

    Fucking sitout gave me a type 1 shoulder separation. The guy hit it real hard and I just got owned. I'm getting angry just thinking about it.
