    does anyone know where i can find alink of a vid or pictures on this guard breaker;

    ur arms in the dude's arm pits, extend then, stand up, one knee on the butt , sit down and break the guard. very classic way. but sometimes the guard doest open like, i cant sneak my knee between their gooch and my balls as i sit down. i think im missing a crucial step, so if anyones got a tutorial, im game. this, when it works, it fucking works .

    i like a variation thats a little different. push down on the waist and jam a knee the same way as the video. step a leg back and lean back pushing on the leg till it breaks the guard. its a little easier then standing and breaking your posture, to many things can go wrong imo

    90% of guard breaking is creating space. most people don't know that...

    Breaking the guard is actually my weak spot. Which isn't good, since I'm a top player.
