Guard Escape (Elbow Drive) - Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Techniques

Guard Escape (Elbow Drive)

This is a basic escape from the guard.

You are inside your opponents guard.

Grab hold of your opponents belt with your fingers underneath.

Now drive your elbows down into your opponents thighs. This will cause immense pain and should cause your opponent to uncross their feet. It may even make your opponent feel slightly faint if you manage to apply enough pressure to the main artery in their legs.
