    not at Carlsons
    I love it.

    At our gym we have been finding that the 4 or 5 guys that play this a lot are all picking up jacked necks and upper back pain. I think mainsy picked up the same thing when he was playing his ridiculo guard.

    Should be alright so long as you dont hang out in it too long.

    Even still, with that control and a turn of the hips you can normally prevent it

    I only roll with one guy that uses inverted guard effectively and I find it hard not to dive in and end up having to work hard to defend a triangle/omopolata. For some reason when the guy is upside down I suddenly forget the two arms in/out rule.
