    I have my own stuff, but I'm interested to get the input of this forum. This is a good collection of capable grapplers, and I'm interested to see what people use. To either sweep, defend, or escape.

    I'll always try to whip up and attack a single leg/sinlge leg getup, but in terms of a guard, X-Guard in all its forms is my go to. Or, I'll keep one really solid butterfly hook behind their knee, and then put my foot either on their hip, or the front of the knee, or get another hook depending on how they react. But mostly, X Guard and SLX.

    i find most ppl stand to pass. i play guard when they do. its a pretty vague question tbh. it all depends on what grips, posture, pressure they are using. or do you mean they are at range and nobody has grips??

    like i said, its vague.

    De la riva guard. If I lose grips then I sit up and attack a single leg.

    Shin to shin, DLR, RDLR, X, spider in the gi. There are so many options against a standing opponent that I almost never pass standing. Too many things to worry about.

    It is vague, you're right. I guess that almost answers part of what I'm asking, which is that if someone stands to pass, you try to get the grips you want and regulate distance.

    Yeah. I feel much the same. I'd much rather go tight or stay down with good posture.

    This is similar to how I roll. I like to hook inside the leg to try to almost combat stand up into a single or double leg. The rest of what you are describing is really similar to drills that we do in class, just staying oriented to your opponent and regulating space.

    Yeah, really, as soon as the guy disengages from pinning me in guard (or as soon as I can create space), I am immediately either hitting a Technical Standup, or attacking a Single Leg. But if I do wanna "play guard", that's what I do. I am definitely more of a "scramble wrestling" kind of guy from the bottom, which leads to a lot of my Kimuras as well.

    We are really similar, in the sense that we are both clinically insane.

    But in a grappling sense as well. I am not a sweep guy from the bottom, and I sell out on kimuras during scrambles. My training partners comment during our conversations that my game is to escape and wrestle.

    I'm trying to build on that though, and give advice to other people in the gym as they ask me. I know that what works for me doesn't work for everyone, which prompted this thread. It's easy to say, "Ask so and so, he does well there", but I'd like to be beyond that, and have advice to give instead of just referring.

    Man that's a wall if I've ever seen one. I use DLR and shin to shin if the angle is towards my left, X on the right

    ideally I get a collar grip, but I really like transitioning between a lot of different guards depending on how the person is attacking. I'll always look for a hook of some sort to disrupt their movement and try not to let them get close enough to smash, unless it's on my terms. my hips are my strength, so I need to keep them free and active. I've been playing around with RDLR and SLX lately.

    To elaborate a little more on this, I either try to knock them on their ass/side and attack the legs or come up on a single. My sweep game is primarily wrestling from my back/butt. I just do it from 1lx or butterfly.
