agreed about hiding hand under the arm pit... I use an analogy of fighting for underhook from 1/2 guard where you use your elbow to maintain space as you circle your forearm under... In the side control case I post the base of my hand on the front of his shoulder/armpit, then I just circle my hand.. It's a nice way of maintaining a bit of a frame as you hide your hand... It's also easy to transition that hand down his arm towards his elbow and do a technical standup type escape in a very Marcelo type way.
thanks guys :D
