I may have overlooked it, but I would like to see some things to do out of just plain BJJ guard. Sometimes rolling around with my buddies I end up in guard, or fall into it, or work into it, but then don't know how to do much besides a guillotine, kimura, triangle, or just kick them off. I kinda made up this simple little sweep where you catch a punch or something then pull that arm under while you throw your hips to the side and lever your legs down and end up in mount. But it would be great to see some sweeps or tricks to do in guard. If there already is some videos on here, help a bro out and give me the link. haha. Thanks!
Hey Dickey, long time no see. Good to see you on the forums again. Yes, there isn't a lot of guard technique in the tecnique library YET. We will be beefing up that area next. While we work on developing that portion, please consider the following.
We have 3 rules for our MMA guard. When working the guard, you must be sweeping or submitting your opponent, or standing up. The 3 S's. No hanging out. If you can't submit or sweep your opponent, chances are, they have an impecable posture that cannot be broken. That's you're que to stand up and get out of underneath him. Otherwise, your just a guard waiting to be punched or passed.

Thanks Dr. Sick! I'll start with those basic ones and work em solid then look forward to your other videos. And yes I know it's been awhile. School laptops had to get returned for the summer and our desktop computer I'm on now is very slow and frustrating. But I can put up with that to get on here and soak up everything I can!
Oops, I forgot a couple.
Also the "Anatomy Of The Triangle Choke" features a solid body of information on submissions from the guard. You might want to check it out as well.

I love a good submission. I like knowing the simple little ones like wrist locks or Sensi Paulson's "Scorpion Death Lock", along with being able to hit an armbar, heel hook, or choke from nearly every position. I personally think it is best to be a threat from all aspects and anywhere on the mat. Don't just have a strength, be strong in all areas, and maybe be even stronger in a specific aspect. But I love the guard striking series up there. Not many, especially in my bar-brawl, farm town setting, is going to expect someone to trap you and beat the shit out of your face from the guard on the bottom. I know if someone were to do that in the cage in an event in my area, the crowd would go "ooo!" and he would be the new celebrity in northeast Nebraska. I love knowing the little gems here and there that really put one a step above the rest. I mean you get to a certain point where all fighters know what the other is looking for, but if one keeps coming back with little tricks and spots that no one sees coming, every opponent will step into the cage with you just a little bit more cautious than before, and that split second of hesitation can be the difference between a decision and a knockout or tapout.
Stay tuned Dickey. We have a whole series of "games" for the arm trapping idea. You saw a tiny piece of it above and also in the Counters to the Back Mount Series but we have them from top, in the guard, standing and clinched, side cross, etc. What more, we have a lot of counters and escapes mapped out for you guys too so when others start to catch on, you'll still be a step or two ahead.
We don't have the series filmed yet. But we plan to share it with our members. It's hard to determine where to spend our time. Up next for filming is the traditional and new school guard stuff. Then probably guard countering strategies as far as filming is concerned. Then after that, arm traps. I've also got to do uppercuts and overhands for a member request as well as film the "Muay Thai Power Combinations" for the Thai Pads to help MP3 users understand what we are doing with our same side combinations.
On the editing board now are Tall vs Short and Short vs Tall Striking Strategies, "The Striker's Formula", knee on belly and 100th Damage Control MMA Episode Part 2 for youtube.
