Finally Escape The Dreaded North South Position


Escaping the North South Position is one of the most challenging positions to escape - in fact most jiu jitsu coaches even say that there is not much you can do from there!

Well - leave it to Bernardo Faria to show you how to escape the dreaded north south position as well as many other challenging positions to escape in jiu jitsu.

Bernardo Faria is a IBJJF World Champion... actually he's a 5 time IBJJF World Champion under Alliance, and considered one of the top Super Heavy Weights of our generation.

He's regarded as having one of the best half guard in the world, and is also know for his ability to escape and defend every thing.

In this jiu jitsu escape instructional video, Bernardo Faria shows you his tried and true escape from the north south position.


A big part of escaping the north south position in jiu jitsu is remaining safe and patient when looking to escape.

One of Bernardo's favorite escapes from the north south position is to escape back into the deep half guard position (Bernardo's favorite guard).

The secret to this jiu jitsu escape technique, is controlling your opponents pant legs and using footwork to bring your opponent into the half guard to attack from there.
