Thread: going upside down to stop the guard pass

    Default going upside down to stop the guard pass

    i've talked about this before and how i use the upside down guard mainly as a transitional position to stop my guard being passed. i couldnt find the thread i was talking about it on, but i found a video that illustrates what i was talking about very well:

    I know its only flow drilling but I'm just wondering what's stopping the opponent from dropping to north south when the chap in blue is upside down?

    Anytime i've tried they can spin back to full guard easily. I weight over 100kg's as well! You can't get good upper body control before they spin off. I just back off these day's to avoid the triangle.

    Thats pretty much how I was taught. I think its potentially very dangerous in MMA if you put a foot wrong.

    Started using this a few months ago and i find its really effective with guys who just try to stuff past your guard and stack you, also the triangle is there quite a lot.

    would you not be rather open to attacking the feet?

    I like to kneel on peoples faces when they play upside down guard and attack with a figure four footlock,but it's
    a great transitional position if they don't stop there too long.

    In what way. Anyone who has done it to me keep their knees tight to their chest so I can't think of any? I'm not great with the position though, so if you can't think of anything out with it! Will improve my game.

    Forehead on their stomach from north south = the counter to this.

    Check out Ryan Halls videos for how effective inverted guard can be though.

    You did that to me!! Think I had to unwind myself to normal guard to stop my foot falling off
