      I’m actually playing around with format of my classes right now. Im curious to see what other instructors find is the best for their students, so actually i’m open to feed back on this.

    Hi professor Henry,

    I was successfully implement this when they try to pull strait forward and downward. However, if they try to arm drag across with an intention to climb to my back. I felt that if I keep posture he will start climbing my back but If i bend my arm to prevent his hip from moving, my posture is broken. How do I deal with this situation?

    Best regards,

    After put in some thought, should I lift up my right knee and put my right foot on the ground to block his hip? This way I can maintain my posture without the risk of getting climb to the back. ( he’s arm dragging my right arm).

      Your free arm should be opening the legs so he can’t just climb around you, you can also grip his gi by putting the lapels together if he’s wearing a gi, just make sure not to lean forward or put weight on the arm or he can break you down

    For those of you who are new to Henry’s teaching, all of his stuff is great, but his stuff from inside the guard and how to use the closed guard may be the most earth shattering for you. I’m grateful that I only had to do jiu jitsu for 15 years before I had the opportunity to learn this stuff.

    I’ve always had to work so hard to get out of the closed guard but this makes the partner tired with me doing much. i like this style.
