TECHNIQUE

Marcelo escapes Side Control after his frames collapse or get deflected: If your opponent wriggles his or her shoulders free from your hands and lands at your side, keep them away from holding your head with a Cross-Face. If they land next to you on their knees, shift out from underneath and make a grip on the triceps for the Elbow Push Escape. If they land on their hip for a Modified Scarf-Hold, apply a collar tie and sit upright; pummel a Butterfly-Hook along with an Under-Hook to recover back your position.
