    Leg grapevine escape

    Sorry, this is probably an extremely noob question, but I couldn't find any useful results on a google search. How do you escape the leg grapevine? The one where you're mounted or in someones guard and they entwine their legs around yours and stretch/twist your knees. Thanks!

    Pinch them with your own legs. Now he's locked. Then, use a foot to push a leg out. Check out saulo ribeiro's DVD on the mount to see what i'm talking about.

    Fence one of your legs out to use as a base. Trap the arm and the opposite side, and bridge and roll.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    Sorry, what do you mean by fencing one of your legs out?

    You know how when you're in the clinch, you'll be fencing/swimming/pummeling for underhooks? The grapevine is a lot like that, except your fencing to get your legs in position for the bridge and roll. You, as the mountee, want one leg outside of theirs to keep them from basing out, and one leg inside to push off of for your bridge.

    This obviously only applies to the mount, by the way.
