Due to repeated offences your posts in Department of Homeland Security will be deleted until you send me a video of yourself paying 20 pushups.
I am a whore and will spread my legs for anyone. Opening my guard proactively allows me (unless I have the suck) to choose my foot placement. It also allows me to put my foot into his hip to prevent passes. I am currently a bit biased to getting my hooks in for butterfly, but have recently begun (in the last 4 months or so) to work more open guard stuff with the gi. My no-gi open guard is heavily biased towards getting butterfly, but I also try to work my basic submissions from guard (kimura to hip bump, armbar to omoplata). If I refuse to open my legs I can never work these transitions.
In closing... spread 'em, baby.
