For me, and I'm sure that you're probably on a similar page, Shaun, because we usually are on this kind of stuff, there are some 10th Planet techniques that are just plain bad once you get into the upper levels.

I see a lot of whitebelts using the lockdown from the half-guard expecting it to stop a more advanced student, and many of the guys who work in with them (whether its me, or Kevin Dadik, or one of the other good grapplers who occasionally works in with the class) has no problem locking up the cross face and passing.

Even if you're learning to work off of your back, begin and end with the high closed guard, or the traditional half-guard. They're the more aggressive positions. They involve less stalling, they make your game more aggressive and force your opponent to do something.
I agree. I'm sure the upper level guys are great with this stuff, but it's way too advanced for the large majority of the people that are trying this stuff.

I personally love when white belts try lock down because it's a pretty easy pass.
