Maintaining and/or attacking from the closed guard
Hello fellow bros and broesses,
I accidentally posted this incorrectly in the wrong forum. However, I did get a great response from wukkadb. Sorry about the repetition!
Here's my question:
Let's say that your opponent is on his knees and inside your closed guard.
Your opponent has:
1. Good base.
2. Both hands on your hips for support.
He puts one knee against your tail bone and starts to move his other knee back to break open your closed guard. It is just a matter of time before he breaks your closed guard.
My question is what type of moves or counters would you use as an attack.
I have tried the Gi choke, but I had a hard time reaching his collar since he postured up.
I did not think an arm bar was possible since his hands were on my hips and also his arm was close to his own body.
Also, if you could recommend a DVD or book for this type of situation, that would be really be helpful.
