The Rubber Guard is a closed guard system, made popular by 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu founder, Eddie Bravo. The Rubber Guard focuses on clinching your opponent and keeping them guessing what you are trying to attack them with. Although the Rubber Guard was developed with Mixed Martial Arts(MMA) in mind, it can be used by practitioners of Gi Jiu-Jitsu, No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu, and MMA.
The submission names or technique steps of the Rubber Guard system can be quite entertaining – New York, Home Alone, Death from Below, Zombie, Chill Dog, Gogoplata, Loco Plata, and Crackhead Control. Heck, even the name of the system, Rubber Guard, often gets chuckles from people.
