I was just wondering if this also helps stop those rubber guard specialists from getting high guard on you? I haven’t had a chance to go against a rubber guard expert yet. Thanks.

And this is coming from a LONG TIME student of a Rickson Gracie black belt. Michael H February 21, 2018 at 8:07 pm Log in to Reply All of the reasoning here made sense. I’ve never taught to use the elbow and body weight to open guard before. I’m not sure why I was never taught to use leverage like this in any of the jiu jitsu lessons.

Mark S April 2, 2018 at 11:22 am Log in to Reply Hi Henry – when you’re using the left arm to break the crossed ankles/guard, does the technique need to be modified depending on whether the opponent is crossing his left ankle over his right (vs right ankle over his left ankle)?
