Being on the bottom is tough, especially in MMA where someone is trying to punch your head through the ground. The BJJ guard is one of the few positions off the back where you truly have a chance to have an upper-hand.
There are many keys to making the position work for you. If you can break your opponent’s posture down, your options open up big time.
