My client’s third hour of her second MMA course included a review and confirmation of transitioning on the top and an introduction to escapes.

We began with a ground-fighting callisthenics warm-up. Then we moved onto the pin transitions. The sequence was finished with a knee-pin before returning to the side-control starting position. I went over some details and focused on getting the transitions smoother. Both my client and her lock-in training partner then performed the se quence moving in the opposite direction.

We then looked at side control escape. Here I covered using upa to reverse the pin and snaking to move into full-guard.
