GB Technique: Escape Like Houdini

Harry Houdini was an old-time magician made famous by his stunts involving escapes from impossible situations. Any time someone escapes a seemingly inescapable position, we can call them Houdini.
Be like Houdini in jiu-jitsu class and try these positional escapes and your opponent will be scratching their head wondering just where you went?
