BJJ concepts: Escaping the mounted position

Mount in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is king. Obviously, taking your opponent's back with hooks is just as awesome, but getting to mount and keeping it as the great Saulo puts it is "the Mecca of jiu jitsu". That last thing you want when you reach mount is to simply lose it and if you find yourself under the mount, you want to be escaping. Now. A while ago, I stumbled across this awesome video of the legendary Rickson Gracie teaching a private session where he does things my mortal brain can not understand. My eyes see, but my head goes "huh?" Invisible Jiu Jitsu - The amazing balance and connection of Rickson Gracie:

 

 So when I found a video by 2 instructors I hold in very high regard, the awesome 7th degree black belt Joe Moreira and his 3rd degree black belt Michael Jen, explaining concepts which I recognized from the Rickson Gracie video above, I was over the moon. I will be rolling the jelly as soon as I get on the mat. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
