Years ago the half guard was known as a stalling position or a safety position. It was never really something that people thought of as a very strong offensive position. But then as grappling evolved so did the half guard, and I mean it evolved a lot!
In that evolution of the half guard, the all mighty deep half guard was created. This half guard is one of the most high percentage and offensive half guards you can play. Grapplers from the most basic to the most advanced play this position with great success and I don’t see it stopping any time soon.
The video that I share with you today isn’t anything fancy. It’s not the newest cool attack or anything like that. It’s something much more important in my opinion. It’s a foundation for your development of a strong deep half guard.
I’ll be showing you many tips and concepts to help you improve and build off of your deep half guard position with the hopes that you can use these tips to help you grow in your grappling either in an offensive way or defensive.
If you are a beginner, this video will get you started on the right track. If you are experienced hopefully this video adds positional concepts into your game or refreshes concepts that you already knew. Either way I hope it has a positive affect.
I hope you enjoy,
