Ep. 88: Open Guard Series: Gi-Based Guards
Aug 31, 2020 Episode 88
Steve & Matt Kwan

This week, Steve and Matt talk about gi-based open guards!  There are a lot of variations, including spider guard, collar and sleeve, and worm guard.  The sheer number of grip configurations can be overwhelming.  Rather than trying to memorize each variation, we suggest thinking in a concept-based approach.  In this episode, we discuss how.
