    Hi Henry. I tried this escape today and from the top persons point of view found it pretty easy to swing my right arm pit over my partner’s arm as they raised their elbow to shrug out of the position and flatten him out again. Is there something the bottom guy was doing wrong or is this the best way to counter the escape?

      I’d have to see exactly what’s happening, for me there is so much going on in a position that cannot really be described adequately with just simple text, like where weight is or exactly what part of the arm is being blocked or grabbed, and it all makes a difference
