So lately I have been playing around with half guard sweeps such as the "X-Guard" series. I know the basics of sweeping from half guard, getting on your side, not flat on your back, and getting your opponent off base. However when I roll with people that are good with head/arm chokes, I get in trouble when I switch hips on to my side. Every time I get to my side to shoot me under hook and to trap their leg, they reach for my neck and pressure me with chokes. Usually I keep my chin down but most of the times, I would have to ditch my under hook or the arm that is shooting for their leg to defend this choke. Then I get flat on my back again. Then I come straight back up to my side shoot for the under hook and leg control but again I get trouble with head/arm chokes. Its like a battle from half guard for like 10 minutes on positioning. Does anyone know any minute techniques that would help me establish control and sweep even if they try to go for the sub? Sorry for the rant bro skis.
