I showed this escape in class and was met with a chorus of "that won't work". I'm determined to try it for a while tho Phone Post 3.0

By itself, this escape can be countered like any other by a skilled opponent who knows it's coming. When used at the right time in the context of Marcelo's complete escape system, it is very hard to stop and can get you out of a number of bad scenarios, not just the one shown in the initial post.

THIS

the whole push escape series is a total gamechanger. It is one of if not the best escape strategy from under side control that I have ever seen. If you time it right it is very difficult to deal with.

It's funny. I just taught a version of this in class this week. I have never seen anyone teach it before. I picked up a couple of great details here. It's not a strength based move. It's all posture, timing, and proper framing. Of course it can be countered. I think it was checkuroil who said "if there is a move that can't be countered we'd only teach that one." Anyway, I've found this to be a really effective escape in the right situation.

Marcelo also does a variation of this using a collar-tie with his near hand. I've had a lot of success in sparring with this.

because you often lock out the arm that is doing the pushing to gain leverage, it can be vulnerable - especially if you dont shrimp back or roll the guy over your lap in time, so you have to be aware of this. I was just talking with Marcelo Garcia about this very move the other day.

Here are two videos on Marcelo's sit up escape system, which includes the elbow push and its variants.  These vids don't cover the whole system by any means, and there are a lot of "what if" scenarios they don't address.  They are more meant as an introduction.  The best way to learn the system is to train with Marcelo, of course, and/or subscribe to MGinAction.  I apologize for the fuzzy video quality, I kinda made a copy of a copy and the clarity degraded a bit.  Hopefully they are still beneficial.

Finally got to use this. More like a variation of it. As I would sit up opponent attempted to take my back. I maintained grip and was still able to take top position. Just from watching video and no drilling at all. I would vote it is an extremely effective technique. Phone Post

These escapes have been working for me pretty well. The second variation can be tricky to tip the guy over if he has a weight advantage but if you use the momentum of the leg swing you should be able to recompose guard at least.

I think you are talking about the "shoulder push" variation in the original video, when the opponent switches his base? The best time to hit this is right as he is switching before he has a chance to settle. You can still do it later, but it's definitely more work. If the guy leans forward to counteract your leg swing and push, now it's time to switch directions and shrimp away from him, bringing your close knee in to frame and recover guard. Phone Post 3.0
