When I roll with high whites and blues they tend to immediatley go to some form of open guard on me. I am always helpless. At first I was so concerned with passing, I didn't even think to break grips. So I went nowhere fast. Alot of struggling just to end up subbed or swept. Now, I seem to concentrate on breaking grips, which I do, and have a free arm or two for a few seconds...I am still unable to pass. These guys are totally controlling me with their legs. Sometimes I waste alot of time breaking grips, twisting and twisting, breaking and breaking, they just keep gripping again and again...and before I know it I am tapping or on my back getting mounted. There are various ways they use open guard on me...they turn their hips and put a leg across my belt and the other on my hip. Or up on my biceps...etc... Now, I know alot of this is inexperience but is there something I can work on. Right now, the only true guard pass I know is the closed guard basic one. Elbows in, break, post an arm, stack one side, grab opposite lapel, pass...(bad description) and against newer guys I can manage that...if I try against an experienced guy I end up in a triangle or an arm is out there for the taking...And most of the blues don't even bother with closed guard...boom - right to open. I apologize for the vague descriptions, but did this/does this happen to anyone?
