Saulo teaches three ways to escape the knee on belly. The classic approach relies on a quick hip bump with the right grips to topple your opponent when they have already established the position. The running escape to guard or running escape to single leg escapes move away from your opponent to either create the space to roll into guard or to get back on your knees. In all cases, it is important to cut down on the time of reaction for all of your escapes to increase the likelihood of escaping successfully.

Saulo teaches how to survive in the knee on belly position and how to recover to a more neutral position using the running escape. He advises against using your hands to press on your opponent's knee. While it may be a natural reflex to use your hands to relieve the pressure of the knee on your hands, using your arms to push on their knee can provide your opponent with opportunities to attack your arm. Instead, we roll away from the knee and use our arm and knee to create a shield and rotate our hips out and away to make the running escape.
