Add to Favorites 1183 Remove From Favorites 657 days ago

Xande now talks about when your opponent uses the grapevine while mounting you, which happens when he drops all his weight in his hips and ties up your legs with his feet. The overall process is the same as the hip block escape, but he must address the grapevine. His first step is to bump his hips and get his frame in place on his opponent's hip. Now he can clear his legs of the grapevine by stretching one leg, bringing it around and using it to push his opponent's other hook off him. Now he can finish escaping the mount as shown before.
