    Thanks so much for the guard retention ideas Henry. I never saw these techniques. I can’t wait to see more videos on this subject and some that show us how to get the arms involved. Realistically I assume you have to grab your opponent at some point.

    How do deal with footlocks? I feel vulnerable

      Hey Kenneth I will answer that in future videos, when playing open guard there’s always a possibility of your opponent dropping back to attack the ankles, which if you defend properly can also give you the opportunity to come on top. There are also things you can do to not allow them to grab the ankles. This is just the beginning, lots more updates to come!

    This lesson is the Unit 10 in a real practice example time movement (Unit 10 – Ping and Ponging The Opponent Between The Legs) … Great technique!

    If the opponent try to smash the knee that is up, to pass the guard to the opposite side, take a look on the “Unit 9 Recovery From Knee Sheild Smash” which is another great technique for this Open-Guard situation …
