Thread: I can get high guard but the guy just postures up....

  1. #1

    Default I can get high guard but the guy just postures up....

    Any advice do i need to sqeeze tighter or should i grap his head etc. Is the high guard a postion that is essential to learn because in theory it sounds great to climb your legs up and attack but i can't seem to keep it???

    Once you've broken the posture, make sure you really concentrate on the collar grip. That's vital in keeping them down. Work your legs high (I also usually like to switch my sleeve grip to the elbow) and get your ankles crossed asap.

    Now you just have to keep everything tight. Pull your knees towards you and towards each other. Really pull with your abs. The collar grip should always be pulling them down.

    If they do start lifting up and you can't stop it, follow them with your hips. If you let them start making space they are probably gonna escape at some point.

    I like to grab my shin behind their head, sort of like rubber guard but with feet crossed. In some cases you can stick your forum between their head and shoulder and head. If they explosively sit up, follow them and hip bump sweep

    Nothing works 100% of the time. if you break his posture and he posture's up again, you can keep on break him down or go to open guard of spider guard or sit-up guard ect. you can try a different control like getting on over hook or under over or double underhooks to try and keep him down.

    having a high guard is just one option. dont try and force it at the expense of other technique, for the sake of it.
