I've been instinctively pulling guard rather than sprawling when people take me down. No good for a no gi tournament like NAGA which doesnt award points for this. In other news my guillotine chokes have been yielding more taps, and I've found a personal work around against the von flue(sp?) choke defense. Rubber guard has been working nicely for me in MMA. My grappling game is finally improving and I finally feel I'm getting somewhere. Couldn't have done it with all the guys I've been rolling with and learning from. How is your ground game doing?
