Westside:Half Guard

Chris,I have heard people discuss the Half Guard in MMA,as a transition only position,or a very good position,ala Minotauro,What is your take on it?

In Guam, you may have to wait awhile.

i think he has his laptop so he will be on sooner

I don't have a lot of time because Adam is weighing in, in about 3 minutes and I was just checking my email. I will come back on in a few hours and explain as well as i can.




I think it is a pretty good position. I prefer the butterfly half over regular half though. There are some great sweeps and escapes from there.

It's when you have the half guard but your legs aren't locked - your outside foot is hooked under his thigh like when you do an elevator sweep.
