Depends on what the guy's afraid of, really.

Generally, I start with my left hand (weak hand) on the my opponents right tricept, gripping the sleeve. My right hand on the collar (not across the neck, but I'll get to that in a second), deep so that I'm trying to grab the back tag.

From this position, I can slip the right hand onto the other side of the neck and threaten the choke (which always gets them to posture up). I can slip the left hand in across the collar, then (without giving up the right hand grip) force the head down with my right forearm, swing it around the head and secure the choke.

I can also release the right hand grip and transition to a 2-on-1 to attack the armbar, because of the grip on the tricept.

If I have an opponent who I've been armbarring a lot, or if I know a guy (in competition) has seen me use the armbar a couple of times already, I go straight to the 2-on-1 grip to freak him out. This usually gets opponents to posture up withe the elbows in (relieving the pressure on the chest), and from here I attack the hip sweep or just situp and pull them down or attack the collar choke. All are viable options.

OK, thanks for the advice. I'm looking forward to try some of that stuff. One more week before my training starts.

My club has a training season from September to July with two months off in July and August. Two months is a very long time without training but it was good for me because of my injuries.

I hate that. When I can't train, I get crazy and antsy. I end up going out and rolling with a friend.

Same here. Grappling is an interesting drug.

For sure. If you've got more questions about grappling, feel free to post 'em in here. I like working in this thread. It keeps me thinking about the ground game and revisiting techniques that I should share with training partners and practice myself.

Proper hold to avoid hits from guard.

Alright, When you are in bottom guard. What's the proper hold to avoid them from raining blows? or standing up.

Also, same as in full guard. Do I hold double under hooks? or hold around the head and arms?

Thanks.

not that i've done much mma sparring, bj penn has what he calls a dam good guard, which is pinning one of the arms to the side and your other arm behind the neck while having your opponents posture broken down.From here your opponent cant really do anything until they posture up, and you can make attacks from the guard, also if you doun't want to get hit, when they are postured up, grab the hand an pull them up. this seems to work for me.

good luck

Thanks, Well i'm quick at reacting, and I only do backyard fights, so when they posture up, i break one leg in and i roll into mount. but, I know that won't work in the future, so I have to learn

Thanks for the reply!
