    Do you swap leads to keep them un-matched or do you switch to a more conventional stance on the other side?

    I try to keep opposed as a general rule since i hate getting hit and prefer to counter.
    I certainly play orthodox as well. I'm a big believer in solid fundamentals/basics.

    (My earlier "all the time" was a bit hasty and overblown, apologies. I don't use it to the exclusion of an orthodox approach.)

    As a former Philadelphia native, I ask God during my bedtime prayers why he gave the ability to be the world-wide rep of this guard to Floyd Fucking Mayweather Jr.

    He still won't answer. Why God, why?

    Chen, why does watching him do this always remind me of certain types of bong sau? Is there any similarity or is it just my noob eyes?

    I guess so, i just like to protect my liver.
    I try not to do any of the real high elbow blocks, it kind of negates what i'm looking for.

    If you find getting kicke in the leg a problem when you defend punches in this guard, use footwork to move into a position where it's hard to get leg kicked at the same time you defend the punch.

    I knew you'd know the one I meant.

    I'm a tall person so my bong sau is just naturally lower I guess when facing most people. The bong sau I would use is like this but just not with the elbow so high...more shoulder height.

    Or maybe I've just watched Mayweather too much and I'm trying to turn my bong sau into his Philly shell.

    ChenPengFi, the thing is everything you are saying is effective by itself. If it takes all those adjustments to make the crab guard work then what is the point?

    Because i'm a Mayweather nuthugger!!

    Seriously though, i think the low lead helps me defend takedowns (marginally) better.

    Does the low guard help defend takedowns more than not standing sideways would?

    I was thinking this. I would imagine that standing side on with your front arm across your body would make you both vulnerable to single legs and allow people to take your back standing much more easily; although I'd have to give it a try and see..
