    Yeah, I actually use my ribs far more than my chest when doing side control. It allows me to drive both down and sideways into my opponent and make it very uncomfortable for him.

    That makes sense - thanks! Yet another thing to avoid...

    Patience.
    Don't go for anything unless you have position AND control of at least 1 limb.
    And for the noobs, guys, tap out when you are locked in ok? leave the ego and "testing your pain threshold" outside the mat.
    KNOW when you are beat.
    Keep everything tight and neat.

    DRILL and DRILL and DRILL and when you are finished, DRILL some more !

    Oh, one of the most important principles:
    Control your opponent's spine. Whether he's in your guard, under sidecontrol, mount, passing your guard etc, you should be trynig to break his posture by turnnig his head. It will literally make him weaker, stop him driving into you, stop him bridging etc.

    Yes, after you've pulled it out you must hold it very carefully.

    It certainly was 3 years ago!
    While we're necro-ing stuff, I've heard that in things like kesa you want to get your opponents head off the floor to make it harder to bridge, but Yrkoon said pin their head to the floor. Que pasa?
