So I've started training Gi BJJ. Since my experience is primarely in No Gi (ADCC type) submission grappling I am having to adapt to the realities of the Gi game. More and more I am finding my self forcing halfguard insted of initiating any pass in particular. What I mean by "forcing" my oponent into halfguard is putting them in halfguard and flattening them onto their back while also having an underhook. From there I just do the basic halfguard pass and so far this has been working for me since at the other place where I train we practice it alot. So my question is: is this a viable strategy or is such thinking just a rookie mistake that is going to backfire somewere along the line?
