I have mentioned here and there that I have been concentrating on my half guard a great deal lately. Basically, I am using Eddie bravo's game based around the lock down. I can get the lock down and hold it pretty good, I can get double unders most of the time and if I can whip up to my side, I am starting to get old school, Electric chair, take the back or get to my knees for a drive through sweep. Those are coming along nicely. I have ran into a bit of a problem. Some times I get double underhooks but before I can get up on my hip, the guy will just lie across me an base his free leg back where I can't reach it for a sweep. He doesn't have the cross face but he has his weight on me in such away that I can't get up to my side. We end up just staying there because he can't pass my half guard and I can't whip up. Eventually, I would just give up and re-establish full guard but there has to be a half guard option there. I just can't think of it.
