Getting stuck in a closed guard experts closed guard is a miserable place to be. Instead of passing, you spend the whole time fighting to regain your posture and fending off their relentless attacks.
To give you an example of this, check out this triangle attack from closed guard using the Brabo grip. It’s taken from a seminar I taught last weekend at my academy in Plymouth.
As you can see, the combination of the Brabo grip and closed guard makes it very hard for my training partner to maintain his posture and he’s forced to focus on defending.
Keeping your opponents posture broken and on the defensive are both essential if you want to be effective from closed guard.
