A big concept to understand in back escapes is to understand your opponent’s arm positioning. In general, you always want to be over both of your opponent’s arms. If this happens they can’t choke you. If you fall to a side you should fall to the trapped arm side. Meaning your opponent’s trapped arm. The other major concept is determining if you will scoot down to eliminate control from them or push your weight on them.
