What is guard retention?
Guard retention is the act of getting your opponent back in front of you and in between your legs, as he tries to pass your guard. You need to have a grip and at least 3 points of contact.
We all have that training partner that is really flexible and whenever you roll with them, you spend a long time trying to solve the riddle of their guard…
Well that can be you.
