Week 2 – Gracie Barra Jiu-Jitsu Side Control Escapes

This week at Gracie Barra Centennial Jiu-Jitsu we are working from Side Control. Come learn Side Control escapes as well as submissions from side control.

Side Control escapes

In our Fundamentals program we are learning self defense from headlocks. Come learn how to escape the side headlock and turn to the offense with an armbar or an outside hook takedown. As we move on to the Sport Jiu-Jitsu we are training side control escapes when our opponent has the side mount. Side mount is know to be one of the most difficult positions to recover. This week is a must for all Jiu-Jitsu practitioners.

In our Advance Jiu-Jitsu classes you can come improve your hip/hand throws learning an arm drag and a hip throw crossing the arm. On the ground we are learning more side control escapes as well as some attacks from side control.


In our Gracie Barra Kids program, our students learn to break fall, distance control and technical lifts. On the feet they will practice the outside hook takedown. On the ground game our students will practice side control escapes following the structure of our programs like the adults. Our families love when the kids and adults practice similar moves, so when they get home they can practice together.
