What an educated answer




Anyway the best way to get out of side mount is to shrimp out or what we like to call "elbow escapes" place ur hand on his hip and shrimp out and hopefully yo'll be able to at least pull half guard...with mount..if he grapevines you unhook ur legs and bride out to the side while bumping him

Side mount also known as Side Control escapes all depend on where the person's hand is by your hips.
If they place your hand over your opposite hip, take your knee closest to the opponent and drive it through the crease of their hip. Use your knee to create space and grab half guard (you may get full guard if you are quick enough).
If the person's hand is where it should be, blocking your hip, walk your hips away from them until you are in line with your opponent and turn into the turtle position (on knees with hands on ground) and work from there.

From bottom of mount position, as Fedor said, use your elbow escape. Use your elbow or hand to push your opponents knee back and slide your leg under and then over their leg to gain half guard. Place the same hand as the leg you have grab for half guard across the neck of your opponent (as if you were going to do a Gi choke) and use that to create a little space while turning on your opposite hip. Pull your other leg out and grab guard.
Or if the person places a hand by your collar or chest, trap that hand and the same side ankle, hip up and roll (umpa) to that side.

Hope this is what you are looking for.

Dave

For questions about basic stuff, check out the Back to Basics thread. I really have covered a ton of stuff in there over the years.

There are a few posts on bottom escapes, and feel free to inquire about more detail if you want it.

A lot of those posts are just mentioning the escapes in passing. Still, you should read through it.
