    Henry, this is a really key concept you’re teaching here and I want to use it. Where I struggle with posture is how to keep my posture (as modeled by you in this video) when the person on the bottom is strong and has a strong grip on the sleeve of one of my wrists and is pulling my arm towards them, making it very difficult for me to sit up straight or even slightly back. Can you please address this for us and help us understand how to deal with this?

      Yes the key to dealing with the arm pull is to lock your shoulder into socket, so keep your arm relaxed but engage your back so when they pull your arm your shoulder does not come out in front of you. I show this very detailed in my inside the guard course and also how to deal with them pulling the collar. The key is to lock these aspects of your body by engaging the muscles so you basically become one piece then your hips deal with everything.

    Professor Henry, You were mentioning the knee in the butt is more for shorter individuals. So if I’m a shorter guy in a tall person guard, the knee in the butt is a better option for me? I watch your video on Keenum, that’s the pass you are referring to correct?
