Rubber Guard in MMA
I was wondering why we don't see much use of the rubber guard in MMA as it's intended? I don't know much about the rubber guard otehr than what I've youtube'd and heard from Eddie Bravo and looking into 10th planet. It seems like it would be effective and I'm just curious on why we haven't seen it used more widely? I train in traditional BJJ and No-Gi but I would really like to add some 10th Planet stuff but I want to make sure that it's effective. Hence, me asking why it's not used. Is it too dangerous? Are fighters just not familiar with it? Is traditional BJJ just better? Your thoughts please. It would be great to hear from a 10th planet guy if any post on here.
BTW, we traditionally beat 10th Planet guys at tourney's but that could just be the area.
