We’re going to be bouncing back strong from Christmas and getting back to good by getting back to Guard! We have been working on passing the Half Guard, but now we’re going to be starting from underneath this position. One of the most understated options from the bottom is simply to recover Closed Guard and get to a genuinely offensive position.
If we choose to be offensive from Half Guard, utilizing an underhook is a very strong way to attack the Back Mount and even open up some sweep opportunities. Ensuring that we have a good angle on our opponent and stable frames are important here!
We’re working on a short week, but we’ll still be working from Half Guard in our No-Gi and Advanced Classes too – see you on the mat to close the year out strong!!
