Escaping the back tip for BJJ

Here is an escaping the back tip for BJJ that will help you forever. When escaping the back in BJJ, better to have the floor on your back than an opponent on your back. The worst situation in a grappling match is to have an opponent on your back. From there, they have many of the most high percentage submissions in the sport available to use to submit you while you have only a few very low percentage submissions to fire back with. They have a powerful and robust position that is very difficult to escape from when well applied. Thus, we must do our best to avoid back exposure as much as possible. When it does happen that your back is exposed to a dangerous opponent, the safest general strategy it to get your upper back to the floor. This is the best tip we can ever give you. All courtesy of us here at Savarese BJJ Academy (www.njbjj.com) 🙂 The logic is simple, if the floor is on your back, then there won’t be space for your opponent to be on your back. Accordingly, most of the back escapes of Jiu-Jitsu favor the strategy of upper back to the floor. This is the one that minimizes back exposure to an opponent. There are other strategies. You can stand up, threaten kimura etc etc and these can definitely work, but they do result in a degree of back exposure such that if they don’t work, they can get you in deep trouble. So when you feel the danger of back exposure, try getting your upper back to the floor as a first. Once you master this skill, start to focus on avoiding them switching to the mount as well, but you can acquire that skill over time training. Acquire this skill first.
