I've come to realize that I suck at passing the guard in no-gi grappling. When training vale tudo, i'm comfortable inside my opponents guard, basing out, and throwing some strikes.
While I know everyone's going to tell me to work on passing until i get it right, I wondered if anyone knows some decent submissions to throw on your opponent inside his guard. My instructors keep telling me to forget about trying for a sub and pass.
I realize that being inside your opponents guard makes submissions extremely rare or impossible, but last night I was able to make my partner tap after spending 10 minutes in his guard by punching a reverse half nelson in and cranking his head forward.
I dont think it would work if he wasn't exhausted.
Anyone else ever tapped someone with a sub inside the guard? I dont mean n00bs who tap when you cross face them. Thanks a lot, homies.
