I guess I could use tips generally for defending guard/defending against being passed. I'm about 10% working sweeps or subs from the guard, 90% just getting passed. I read something on a thread somewhere about framing arms properly to fend off passes, and maybe that should be common sense after training a while, but I haven't really gotten a sense of how and where to frame my arms to fend off passes well and I guess recover guard. But the most common way I get passed is my opponent will break and get one of my legs pinned to the ground kinda with a stiff arm, slide either knee over top of it, across the thigh area, then either slide the inside one over and through if the outside one started over or swing the other one up and over and then finish getting the first one through. I don't know if I described that well enough for some thoughts on countering/stopping that kind of pass in particular. I tried to think through what I should do myself after training the other day, as I can't reason through while rolling so well, I was thinking maybe I need to work on switching to other open guard types but I'm beginner enough that I'm not good with spider guards or de la riva guards or stuff like that and barely even know what they are. I guess I also need to try to see this particular pass coming and back out a bit so my leg is not pinned right there in front of my opp to slide his knee right over? But I also feel like that will make me even easier to pass... Sorry for the long post. I'll stop guessing what I should do and take some tips. Thanks in advance.
