Ok, I have been doing jujistu for about 10 months now. I am very athletic, flexible, and I am a very good learner. In class I am always tapping the 2 stripe and 4 stripe guys and occasionaly a blue belt. The other day I asked my instructor if we could work on some half guard stuff because that is the part of my game that I am really lacking in. I only know 1 basic pass and it doesnt work most of the time. My instructor told me that I am not "advanced" enough to worry about half guard and the only thing that I need to worry about when i have someone in the half gaurd is getting them back into my full guard. I feel like I am being held back because I feel that I have proven myself through hard work and dedication that I shouldnt be titled as "not advanced for half guard" In what stage did everyone here start going over half guard stuff? am i getting screwed?
