Now Saulo points out that your hands should stay under your body when turning belly down. Many times people will reach for the legs and get stuck because of this. If you are reaching for the legs, it should be in effort to take your opponent down. However, in this case, we are looking to recover guard, so he keeps his hands near his body for protection.

Saulo's opponent is passing his guard, so as soon as he gets around the legs, Saulo's first move is to turn on his side at his 45 degree angle, with both elbows attached to his body. His opponent drops his weight to put pressure, so Saulo bridges to create space. If he now has room to move his hips, he brings his legs in to recover guard.

One detail Xande points out here is that it is not good to stomp your feet on the mat to gain leverage for your bumps when you want to escape. Instead, he is just sweeping the mat as he takes small steps away from his opponent. This allows him to stay connected to the mat, ready to react whenever necessary, and also does not telegraph his next move to his opponent. Now he works his side control escape drill with this in mind, and focuses on keeping a connection with the mat.

Touching on a common mistake, Xande points out how he does not like to make a big hip bump right away. Instead, he moves a little to makes some space, makes sure his frames are in place and then makes his big hip bump and extends his body. Sometimes he even waits for a reaction from his opponent to time his bump. Also, he makes sure to keep his frames in place until he has recovered his guard.

Fine tuning some details, Xande explains how he places his top hand at his opponent's clavicle, with the edge of the pinky finger side making the initial contact. His other hand can stay down at the hip to keep a block and feel his opponent's movement. After Xande makes his first hip bump, now he can extend his upper body to straighten his arm, rather than just trying to push the shoulder away. This gives him the space he needs to bring his leg back in and recover his guard.

With his opponent on his side control, Xande places both hands on his opponent's shoulder, his outside foot flat on the mat and his inside foot on its side with his knee attached to the body. He steps his flat foot out a bit and makes his first small hip escape. Now he has a little space to take another step and push off the shoulder for a big hip escape, and he can bring his leg in to begin replacing guard.
