 The topic of the day was top half guard.


 The half guard game has developed dramatically through the year and it is no longer considered a transition position where people are stuck between closed guard and about getting their guard passed.
Lot of people are developing their game around the half guard.
It might not be the focus of some schools that believe one should not play open guard unless they have been forced to. IE closed guard is better.

















Stand up training was fighting for the  under hook from the clinch and a variation with a leg grab

It is also know pummelling.

Vital skills for grappling.
