Thread: Guard pulling from knees?

I assume that you're only talking about BJJ class. I'd be surprised to hear that judo people don't work transitions from kneeling to standing in order to improve position for going back to the ground.

Actually, we DON'T
probably because in shiai if one person stands up while on the ground then the players are reset. I'll scramble sometimes to get better position where I'll bring my knees up, but we never stand back up once we're on the ground."Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration." -A. Lincoln

Start sitting facing a kneeling opponent. This will cause you to use your legs more for fencing and hooking. Just remember your hands are faster, so use them and have your legs catch up when he goes to pass.
Constantly attack his balance with your hooks. Create a push pull with hands and feet.
