I'm lying on my back in the shell.

Seeing that I have the distance I need to escape up to my feet, I turn to my right side, post up on my right elbow, drop my right leg to the ground, and coil my left leg in. I keep my left arm straight out to gauge distance and protect my face.

To get my hips off the mat, I come up onto my right hand and push off the ground with my left foot.

Seeing that I have the necessary distance I need to escape up to my feet, I post on my right hand and left foot and prepare to lift my hips off the mat.

Beach steps his right foot forward and throws a left roundhouse kick at my head. As he does this, I drop down to my elbow. This lowers my level and allows the kick to whiz by my head. Notice that in addition to getting my head out of the way, I have also cleared my left arm from the kick's path. The reason I haven't dropped all the way down to my back is because I still want to escape to my feet. If I can make Beach completely miss the kick, I will have the opportunity to do that as long as I'm on my elbow.

Having missed the kick, Beach loses balance and plants his right foot outside of his normal fighting stance. This exposes his back and creates an opening to use the previous technique to get back to my feet.
