If they pull their head back then I keep driving and put them on their back and I pass.
These techniques are valuable because:
1) They allow people to work their on-top game and not just "pull guard" because they don't know anything else.
2) This position occurs when you escape from side control to your knees, or bail out from your guard to your knees etc.

Thank you! I need this so much for the exact reasons you just mentioned.

I was able to use the first set of pictures yesterday! Then when we got on knees again and he pulled his knee back. Forgot what to do when he pulled his knee back so I went to closed guard.

I got to try these at BJJ last night, and they worked very well. Very much appreciated, perhaps you could post a few more things ?

I like your threads Johnny, very informative. How would you counter that technique?
I'm thinking that as it's pushed out so far forward, the head could be pulled down and proceeded with perhaps a front headlock or guillotine. Any suggestions?

Because I've got my head in, my arms tight and my butt on my heels it's difficult for my opponent to counter with a snap-down. His best counter is to do the same back to me by blocking my shoulders, and getting his head against my neck so that now my spine is bent.
I'm enjoying playing with my girlfriend's digital camera, so if you guys have any suggestions for common problems in bjj then I can post them up here.

X-guard options, defending the X-guard, and/or S-mount attacks.

I've got some x-guard pics I can put up now - just on how to get there from a failed butterfly sweep. I won't have time to do pics of other x-guard techniques (or anything else really) for another two weeks.
Do you want me to put up a new post now on the x-guard with the pictures and then add new ones, or wait until I get all of them together?
