    Is there a specific name for an open guard which your opponent controls and pulls your sleeves and pushes your hips with their feet? Is this a variation of a spider guard, even though their feet are not on your sleeves?

    Also, what is a good pass for this?

    Thanks

    The spider guard comprises a number of positions all of which involve controlling the opponents arms while using the soles of the feet to control the opponent at the biceps, hips, thighs or a combination of them. It does feel like i have a better control if mt feet are in there arm pits.
