    Is there a simple way to prevent being Darce or anaconda when on the side like that?

      Yes, there is, check out the q&a

    Hi Henry, Sometimes when I’m on my side my opponent will end up sitting on me with one leg on each side of me as though he is mounted on me but mounted on me while I’m on my side. What is the best way to escape this type of position? Thanks.

      Are you talking about a side mount position? Other gyms might call this modified mount or technical mount

    How do you avoid getting caught in a guillotine from the front? Thanks

    Hey Henry, i think Hugh N mean’s the mount but ur on your side. I’ve mentioned it before about the potentiality of them stepping the leg over your leg’s & hips. This is why i asked if the your top leg (When in this Side-Defence position the opponent tries to step over and then bring you into a mount. If he can’t flatten you he can still mount you buy hooking his leg over into a Bastardised version of the mount) was over your bottom at a wide (ish) 45° Angle to stop them from stepping over, thus mounting you without having to flatten you out. Does this wide top leg base make it harder for them to step over? And is that the purpose of it?. Sorry about the length, it’s one of those nightmares to describe 🙁🙂🙏….

    The Answer, as you explained is to put them straight into Guard and it’s not a Static Position.

    Hi Henry. I had an opponent move back toward my legs but when he did so he pinned my top leg down and switched to the other side. Any suggestions to manage that please. Thank you.
