I'm no Ryron Gracie nor does my style even come close to his. I feel like for my skill level, my guard is pretty hard to pass. My guard pass game and a tough a guard to pass are the only two things that I think I am comfortable with for my belt level. I rarely get subbed when I'm on top or when I have a guard. That leaves just when an opponent has passed my guard (I'm not including having my back taken in this conversation because there should be a sense of urgency for everyone, especially in the gi in that position). Do you guys relax and wait for openings to escape/reverse or do you actively start working? I feel like if I hang around and wait for openings, I'm giving my opponent a chance to set submissions up. However, when I act too quickly I sometimes leave a limb to be attacked or expose a deep lapel grip for a choke. Techniques, concepts, theories, or philosophy from after getting your guard passed would all be appreciated.
