Enson:technique question- closed G


If you have your oppenant in closed guard and he tries to open your guard by posting his right arm on your chest and using the elbow of his left arm to jam open your closed guard. What option do you recommend besides going to open guard. I have been somewhat (1/2 the time)successful on getting a high guard over the oppenants right shoulder when he tries this. Of course, I have to bear the pressure coming from his left elbow. But do you suggest anything technique wise. Ultimately, I would like to arm bar the oppenants right arm.

I usually pull the elbow that is putting preasure on my legs away.
