No one — no one — likes being stuck in side control when training jiu-jitsu. In addition to being put at risk for submissions, being trapped in side control also just puts you in a position of struggle, especially if the person on top is extremely heavy, strong, technical, or all of the above.
If “normal” side control just isn’t enough for you, though, check out this wrist lock from ZombieProof BJJ‘s Kent Peters. In this clip, Peters demonstrates how to add an extra “f*ck you” to your side control game by working in a sneaky wrist lock. Try it for yourself, but don’t blame us if your teammates decide to hate you for playing “prison rules”!
