    Hi Henry, would this escape also work against an opponent that has one arm cross-faced under the head and the other arm sprawled out? Thanks!

      Yes you can either push the hand that is sprawled or bridge to the side they have their arm under your head

        Can you make a video detailing this method of dealing with the crossface? Thanks

          A very simple thing you can do to get rid of the cross face is do a big bump to the side they are under hooking your face, if they don’t use the had to base out they fall off. But you can also trap the arm they are basing out with and bridge that direction also

    Awesome Henry,

    Do you still umpa at 11 o’clock for this technique or do you just umpa to 9 o’clock?

    So simple! Is there any quick submission on your opponent if you’re able to trap that arm behind the back from under his mount?
