    well when you have sex with a strange woman from the bar, you should usually wear a rubber to guard yourself from STDs.

    Instead of a normal belt you wear a giant elastic band. You use this elastic band to give your moves momentum.

    Hope that helped.

    Traditional Judeo-Christian guard has always been about abstaining from intercourse prior to marriage, and fornicating only when attempting to conceive children in wedlock.

    Since the nineteenth century, Rubber Guard been one of the most popular methods of contraception in the world. While widely accepted in modern times, rubbers have generated some controversy. Improper disposal contributes to litter problems, and the Roman Catholic Church generally opposes rubber guard use.

    The early nineteenth century saw the rubber guard promoted to the poorer classes for the first time: birth control advocates in England included Jeremy Bentham and Richard Carlile, and noted American advocates included Robert Dale Owen and Charles Knowlton. Writers on contraception tended to prefer other methods of birth control, citing both the expense of rubber guard and it unreliability (they were often riddled with holes, and had their guard broken or passed), but they discussed rubber guard as a good option for some, and as the only contraceptive that also protected from disease. One group of British contraceptive advocates distributed rubber guard literature in poor neighborhoods, with instructions on how to make the devices at home; in the 1840s, similar tracts were distributed in both cities and rural areas through the United States.
    From the 1820s through the 1870s, popular women and men lecturers traveled around America teaching about physiology and sexual matters. Many of them sold guards, including rubber, after their lectures. They were condemned by many moralists and medical professionals, including America's first woman doctor Elizabeth Blackwell. Blackwell accused the lecturers of spreading doctrines of "abortion and prostitution". In the 1840s, advertisements for condoms began to appear in British newspapers, and in 1861 a condom advertisement appeared in the New York Times.
    The rubber vulcanization process was invented by Charles Goodyear in 1839, and patented in 1844. The first rubber guard was produced in 1855,and by the late 1850s several major rubber companies were mass producing, among other items, rubber guardss. Compared to the nineteenth century rubber guards, skin condoms were cheaper and offered better sensitivity. For these reasons, skin condoms were more popular than the rubber variety until the invention of latex. However, by the end of the nineteenth century "rubber" had become a euphemism for condoms in countries around the world. For many decades, rubber guards were implemented by wrapping strips of raw rubber around penis-shaped molds, then dipping the wrapped molds in a chemical solution to cure the rubber. The earliest rubber guards covered only the glans of the penis; a doctor had to measure each man and order the correct size. Even with the medical fittings, however, glans-only guards tended to fall off during use. Rubber manufacturers quickly discovered they could sell more devices by manufacturing full-length one-size-fits-all guard to be sold in pharmacies.

    You don't know a heelhook from a toe hold and that's why you need to come here.


    The opposite is true. People go to other sites run by grappling noobs because those noobs are smart enough to give nice responses to simple questions like this one.:icon_conf

    This is closed guard. Note that the opponent has his back straight so armbars, triangles are really hard to do on him and he has a lot of space to cock back and punch.

    This is rubber guard. Note that the opponent is using his leg to keep his opponents spine low that way he doesn't have much space to punch, and he is more open to armbars, triangles and omoplatas. The opponent will struggle to sit up because of the strength of the guard users leg. The guard player needs some flexibility to use this move hence the name rubber guard. The guy using the guard in this picture is Eddie Bravo, the guy who made it famous.

    Are YOU serious? The guy is asking an honest question and the entire grappling fprum makes fun of him?

    I guess they were right when they said the grappling forum is worse than the OT.

    Rubberguard is a name that eddie bravo gives to his tweaked high guard system. From traditional closed guard, you break your opponents posture as you would normally do. Then if you grab one of your shins over his shoulder to lock him down in a broken posture (as in the picture), you are in "rubber guard."

    But this is old, old stuff. Have you heard of the clam guard, yet?

    it is either

    a) the silliest question that could be found by using the search function or google.

    b) it is a troll.

    Probably both.
