    Spider and De la Riva should be added to the guard list ... maybe quarter as well.

    Just wondering. You've just suddenly posted a lot of white belt questions, and I like to make sure people who do so are actually training otherwise it's a waste of time to answer their questions.

    k guard and z guard......and matt thornton has a pretty cool guard..not sure of the name but he puts his shin across the opponents stomach and the other leg over the guys back....tones of sweeps when opponent gives you any energy

    if you are just beginning BJJ the only kind of guard that you should be worrying about is closed guard and half guard.
