Nice read, thanks.
I like to think of half guard as an upside down single leg. It is also the "single leg counter" position from a different angle than commonly seen in wrestling. Of course, I'll also switch between that paradigm and others; because, there is much more to the half guard than that. But the basic game I use is based on that principle.
Good read thanks, I have to remeber to not be flat on my back so much.
good stuff....thanx for posting
very good stuff! I've recently started using a more active half gurad, though I still only really have a few moves from there. I either try and take the back, sweep with the arm following through the trapped knee (jeff monson sweep), double unders with lockdown and then upa, or a kimura. Does anyone have any other good things to do from there?
jay ive been working on half guard and I want to say omg u r teh rocks leet thx!!!!~~!~~~!!!!!!!!!11212
But seriously, that was my fav guide/article/tips thing ive read from you eva
My half guard is a complete train wreck.
Good, modern tips. This is my favorite of your articles so far.
Great tips. I used to use all those tips into my halfguard game when I first started. But after about 4 years of playing halfguard I figured that bigger guys like myself were not a fast at taking the back and going under the guy to work those angles. Also when I would play the single leg half guard game, you sometimes go against very strong people who will wizzer and stuff to kill your game.
My game is opposite then all the normal rules of playing half guard and has been working. I play my half with my back flat and with the top person in total control of my head and with 1 underhook on me. My half guard attacks are based on them doing that.... This seems to work for the average guy who maybe not in the best shape and not as fast to take the back or take the single leg.
yeah, great article, nothing more to add really.
You're welcome guys.
up for those who missed it.
great read, thank you. I've been working my half guard a lot lately
Is the half guard new in BJJ?
All that stuff is stuff I learned about the half guard from the beginning.
Great article, brother. Very eloquent. Been trying to pass on advice like that to a lot of students, but I have to say, I may just print this out and show them.
Your points are very well made.
