Guard From Anywhere


Having been injured lately, I’ve been off the mat quite a bit.  Because of that, I’ve also been watching more and getting more questions – most of them about different guards and what they look like and physics behind them.  So I made a list of some popular open guard positions and posted some videos here.  I suggest trying them out and looking deeper into them…it’s all about getting better and seeing what works, right?:
