Escape from the guard

  • Sit in seiza, driving fists into the opponent’s hips to immobilize them.
  • Drive an elbow into the inside of the opponent’s thighs, to push that leg down.
  • Pin the pressed leg to the mat with your opposite-side knee.
  • Side your closest leg out of the guard, and transition into a side mount.
