    Default Pin escape tricks/techniques/strategies

    Dear all,

    Recently I have been rolling with alot of Japanese GJJ people who love the GUARD. They just drop right into it. #every GODDAM time.....#

    Can someone please expound on some ground basics against pins and the guard?

    Strategies aagainst pins:
    Always turn into your opponent
    never reach back OVER your opponent
    knees up
    use both hands
    FREAK your opponent out: sword hand knuckle rubs (on the ribs, iside the thighs, elbow ANYWHERE soft (stomache, back of the head, inside of the thighs etc.)

    What else?

    That is a pretty big question. As for passing the guard, you should, of course, get our book Passing the Guard.

    Here is one sneaky trick for getting out of pins: Slip your foot in between his spine and his belt and then push off to make space.

    Talking I hate that too.

    What I do basicly depends whether it is an open, closed gaurd or half guard.

    If it is a open gaurd I don't even try to to tangle with the upperbody. I hook one leg and slide back into an ankle lock (of cour don't make it obvious that itis is what you are doing) Leg locks are my speacilty so once one it on PAIN soon follows!

    There are no excuses on the mat, in the cage, or on the battlefeild! Train wisely!
