    What is your guys favorite way to get pull guard. My personal favorite is to get an overhook and then drag them into either butterfly or closed and then go straight to open guard. I've notice over the years that guard pulling is becoming as technical as a takedown. There's your classic jump guard then the butt scoot. Jeff glover does a baseball sliding half guard. Another one I like is the double leg bail out to guard or even half guard to avoid the gulliotine. I see at tournaments a lot the grab a arm and jump for armbar guard pull which usually results in you hitting the ground very hard. I would jump on youtube too see if there more I missed, so you guys tell me your favorite way to pull guard.

    I use the flying armbar method, or the collar tie to baseball slide into half guard.

    there is a great one where you jump with both of your feet onto both of your opponents feet and then sit. I'll video it this week and post it.

    I like to jump closed guard if they have a more erect posture and are looking for the takedown. If they have a low posture to defend the guard pull or set up a guard pull themselves I like to get a cross collar grip, then do a collar drag into de la hiva.

    I know this is very basic... I just get a cross collar and sleeve grip, put a foot in the hip on the side of the sleeve grip, stretch the guy out as I sit to establish full guard. I often attack a sweep or armbar while the guard is still open.

    pull armbar. nearly 100% success rate.

    walk-through:
    get collar tie, for the walk-through i'll use the right hand on the head.
    then, while in your stance, throw your right leg diagonally across your opponent, falling to your left side. BREAK FALL! you should end up on the ground with your arm extended in an armbar, with your partner standing confused over it for a moment, then taking the arm.

    it only works a few times before they get wise and stop training with you.

    JUMP JUMP JUMP

    I don't like to pull guard, but when I do, I pull them in close and JUMP into them and immediately go for the behind-the-ankles sweep.

    I do like pulling guard too, especially in competition.

    For gi, I like collar and tricep control, while for no-gi, I'll either go for double tricep control (as i try to get under the person), or some type of double hand or wrist control

    No hooks, I just keep my hands under his tri's, checking them, so its easier to get under and harder for him to control me as im getting under.

    I'm guilty of that, except I am the biggest failure of them all.
