Hey guys, I'm turning 40 and need some help. I'm a 4 stripe purple belt but my guard game is under developed. the guard is one of the prime positions of bjj and I know I need to get my guard up to continue to advance.
But, it seems like the guard is so high energy. For the older guys with an advanced guard, what do you think is the most low energy guard play that I should focus on?
I have short, thick legs and can't keep a closed guard. There is the x guard, the de la riva guard, the spider guard, the butterfly guard (which I probably play the most)...etc.
Any suggestions would be great on developing an advanced, low energy guard.
