What is the back survival position?

Sink your weight downward

What is the downside of trying to bridge backwards and scoot your hips to the side in back mount?

Upper back meets their upper chest allowing for more control.

What is the downside of trying to pull the arm down to escape the back mount?

Give them more control, and you're not defending the choke.


What is the downside of going to a side when your back is taken?

You give them the seatbelt and Ezequiel chokes.


What is the turtle survival position?

Assuming your opponent has hooks in:

One hand inside lapel, other hand slightly crossed
Keep your face down on the mat, until you have committed to a reversal.


(2-4) How do you transition from turtle survival position to back survival position?

Post out with left leg while bringing right shoulder to the mat
Driving with your left leg, push your weight onto their right leg
Keep elbows tight
Swing your body to the left ( don't bridge) and establish base.

(3-5) What is the s-mount survival position?

Continue to block their hip with your top elbow and forearm
Bring your bottom hand across your face to defend the neck.


(3-6) What is the consequence of pushing your arms up when mounted?

You are open to armbars
There is no barrier to transitioning to a higher mount
Being flat on your back opens up both sides of you to attack.

You are open to armbars
They can transition to a higher mount

(3-6) Why is it bad to push the knees when mounted?

It's easy for them to pull your grips upwards off their knees
They can grab the back of your neck as a counter pressure

Keep your outside arm hidden and tight to your body
Drive your inner knee into their hip, if you sense knee-on-belly.
