    Unhappy So i just started the gi... Not sure what grips to use from open guard

    Do people prefer the pistol grip, or tradtional bjj grips whilst rolling?

    Sorry for lack of knowledge, just wandered why do people switch up there grips?

    i know alot of people use pistol grips just becouse their fingers are wrecked after years of abuse, i believe some techniques are easier with certain grips too. for me personally it depends if the guys gi is loose or tight since i have pretty big hands its harder for me to use pistol grips on a tighter gi. mainly situational imo.

    I find pistol grips tend to take a micro-second longer for me to engage than four fingers, but then that's just me. I've noticed that really good senior grades BJJers hardly grip at all...and don't let me grip them.
