Our buddy Ricardo from Chile recently sent in a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu related message asking about Guard Pull counters. He said that when people pull Guard on him, it creates a lot of trouble with his BJJ game.
I know that from personal experience as a Guard passer and a person who likes to move when I train or compete in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. I don’t like being in someone’s Full Guard. Full Guard is not a good position for the top person in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. Esspecially if you’re dealing with a long lanky Guard player. It gives them control and in Brazilian Jiujitsu they are in the offensive position.
In this video I share a few easy to use and super simple Guard Pull Counters.
I don’t go into great detail about each counter. Mostly, I did this video to get you to think about options that are possible and options that you can possibly use with your game right now.
So if you’re a Guard passer like I am or just hate being stuck inside the Full Guard position after the Guard Pull. Then watch the video and give these counters and adjustments a try.
I hope this video helps!
