I did a search, and there was a thread on this, but it was in the "Bullshido" forum and I didn't want to 'ttt' it because it would be in the wrong place. Also, the thread didn't last long, and didn't offer too much info.
Anyway, I keep getting put in Kesa Gatame, and I would like to learn a good number of escapes from this position.
So far I have:
1. Scoot your hips out to the side, put a hook in and take his back. This is OK because I am a limber SOB, but it's hard if they have my arm trapped, especially if I'm wearing the gi.
2. Put my free hand across his neck, push him away violently, and try to shrimp my legs free. This works ok, except I realize now that cross-facing in class is a bit of a bitch move, so I would like to be able to do something else.
Any tips on escaping Kesa, or just how to position myself while under it in order to keep from getting subbed, would be greatly appreciated.
