Evolution back control system

2h 26min  

If you want to increase your ability to submit from the back position you need to improve your control. Practice is what improves your BJJ.  


So if you want to get better at submitting from the back you need to be able to keep the position long enough to experiment with which subs work better for you.    Also, if you are a competitor the back is the top of the position hierarchy.  The onus is on your opponent to escape allowing you to conserve energy for your next match.  The subs are much easier to apply when the opponent is trying to escape than when they are just trying to defend against the subs.
