BJJ: Use the hook and escape the mount, with Marcus Meira

Share it

Marcus Meira sets up the hook to escape from under the mount onto the half-guard. 

A teacher at Action Jiu-Jitsu School in Rio de Janeiro, Marcus Meira today brings our hard-working readers a trick to more easily escape the mount.

The mount does allow for a few escape options, but depending on your opponent, getting out from under it can be a tall order. Meira’s technique, however, contains a wrinkle that makes getting out simpler.

First he uses a hook with the foot to control his opponent’s shin, thus creating space to skewer the leg. Then Meira goes all-in for the leg to restore the half-guard and give himself some relief.
