Bottom Side Control: Staying Safe and Escaping

Yesterday, I posted a series of videos that showed some details for how to maintain top side control. Because we are going over side control and kesa getama this month and because I am a fan of what might be called "bilateral teaching"--that is, focusing on the details from the top and bottom of a position, I thought now would be a nice time to find some stuff on bottom side control. There are some really nice details here. But by far the most helpful, at least to me, are the two instructionals by Firas Zahabi (one of the leading MMA coaches in the business).  But the other instructionals (by Marcelo Garcie, Kurt Osiander, Damian Maia, Jean Jacques Machado, and others) have some key details too. So, watch, learn, and go train!
