To escape when on bottom, he turns away and brings his knee and elbow together, as he did during the kick the door movement, and uses his leverage to push off and turn back into his opponent to attack the single leg.

Whether you're looking for the Kimura, straight armbar, choke or whatever else, Saulo stresses the importance of dropping your weight and keeping very heavy pressure on your opponent after spinning to the top and trapping the arm. After establishing your pressure from here, you will be able to find the opening you're looking for.

Now instead of going to the mount from the superhold, Saulo looks to submit with an armlock. With a strong grip on his opponent's triceps, Saulo pulls him on his side and spins to the top, where he drops his weight heavy on his opponent. From here he has the option to attack a Kimura, or to continue his spin to the other side and attack the straight armbar.

Sensei Saulo breaks down the superhold grip from side control, where he is controlling under the head and arm. His first objective is to not let his opponent get any frames on him, and then to keep his hip pressuring his opponent's hip. Now he can bring his hand from under the head to make a collar grip across the neck, and drop his head forward. From here he can slide his knee across to the mount.
