Or ... to post or not to post on your elbow ? Hello fellow grapplers. My first post on sherdog and I need a little help. I've been working on my half guard for quite a long time and I think I have tryed it all. I use the LDHG to set the underhook, as Cyborg shows in his DVD. Roberto Abreu's tips have helped me the most, I'm referring to: (1) the way you shot/pendulum your top leg from LDHG and (2) what he calls "dental cloth". The only problem I have with his variation is that Cyborg explaines you need to load him up and come low ( on your side, but glued ) on the mat - after you get the underhook, and then do the footwork for the sweep. I am having problemes with this because my opponen's weight is on me and I don't have space to work. Saulo in his instructional explaines that you need to post on your elbow for leverage, do a leg swich and jump with you knees pinched too straighten the leg. This works best for me. Cyborg says you don't want to stay on your elbow with your head up because you risc getting choked. I would apreciate all input on this, especially from the half guard wizard himeself - Oli Geddes and from Hillary, who I belive trains with Cyborg.
