How to escape from under super fat guy?
 
Last night during sparring a guy much heavier than me (probably 250+ lbs) basically sat on my chest, planted both of his feet on the ground and was looking to control my sleeves, but he basically just sat there tired waiting for me to do something. He later said "when i'm on top i don't know what to do".

So he's pretty new too, so he just sat there, resting.

I tried giving my back and not let him get his hooks and then bump him off but I was too tired and he was too heavy at that point.

Any video instructionals you can link to or advice on what to do when in that situation?

if he sits on your chest like that, you won't be able to get out, so try avoiding him mounting you by hip escapingwhen he passes your guard!

We were drilling with resisting, starting from the mount. So he was already in mount. I would go for the hip escape and push on his knee and he'd plant his foot, then I'd try to turn the other way and he'd plant his other foot. Was frustrating and embarrasing because I know how to get out but couldn't.

I had this exact problem Tuesday!

My only solution was out working him lol, basically a lot of bumping and shrimping the leg out until you get half guard. From there you do what you normally do.

Throw a doughnut or two and he may get up and chase after them.

\\once he's sitting on your chest with his ass and his feet planted on the ground, its impossible to get him off

Stick a finger in his ass.

Wukka's video is a good one. My preferred escape against the fat guys, at big guys in general, when it comes to the mount is the upe/hook-and-roll escape. Basically, hook a leg on one side with your leg, control a sleeve on the same side, and then bump your hips.

If he gets to a very high mount so that he is no longer on your hips, and you can't use your elbows to work him down, I often offer the armbar by extending both arms and bridging on to my shoulder. If they take the armbar, forcing the bridge harder will basically always land you on top, and if you've been pinching your elbows together as you offer both arms, he's not going to have a good angle on the elbow to finish the armbar.
