Clearing The Arm In Side Control



In this video we show how to clear the arm that allows uke to frame up and do a hip escape as they are trying to escape side control. Keep good downward pressure on the arm, then use your bottom leg to scoop the arm up as you move to kesa gatame with the underhook. You can use Kyoku Jime (息絞) to constrict his breath, harmonise with his breath and as he is breathing out increase downward pressure each time he breaths out, until he can no longer breath in.
