When you’re on the ground defending a leg attack, hip ups create space for you to get out from under your attacker and back to a sprawl position. 

2. Sit Outs 

Sit outs are one of the most effective moves for any grappler escaping from the bottom position. Overloaded sit outs make you more explosive and resilient to attack.

Technical stand ups are common in jiu jitsu. This movement gets you from your back all the way back to neutral.
