MMA Ground Fighting for Self Defense : Escape North-South Position in MMA


JASON JEANETTE: Hi. I’m Jason Jeanette. This
is Daniel Klapheke from the Elite Martial Arts of Middle Tennessee for Expert Village.
This is an escape from north-south back control or what some people call head wrestle; it’s
called “The Pendulum”. All right, say I’ve given a sloppy takedown defense and Daniel
capitalizes on that and he is controlling me, the first thing that I want to do is get
my elbow down like a kickstand. I don’t want anything that he can break me down farther.
So elbow in, kickstand, I’m going to grab same side, his right, my left but same sides
since we’re facing. I’m pinning this arm to my body, and now I’m just going to get out
of his way and let him fall where I was. I’ll lift this knee, my right foot will kick through,
and I will snake my head, push with my head down on him. Turn up in the fight, keep cracking
through his arm. [INDISCERNIBLE]

  1. Works like a charm if the guy on top is grabbing both arms around you body. A grappler knows not to do that, and will go for some kind of head and arm control instead. Then the sitout gets alot harder to pull off.

  2. heyy thanx alot for this lesson, it was hard for me to describe this exact position to look for an escape or counter to it so yeah thanx again, nice vid.

  3. @sev07pass no, the man on top actually would have sprawled. This is how to recover from a failed takedown, or how to recover from someone who got a standing headlock to a sprawl on you.

  4. @Cannibal1349 your right this isnt North south, but Ive been trying to look for an escape for this position. Would you know what this position is called? I want to look for more escapes.
