    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    If you underhook his leg once you've got the triangle locked on then he can't lift you.

    If you're worried about people perceiving you as weak, then try to suck less as a fighter.

    I'm pretty useless in someone's guard. I can attempt atleast a few things, like a triangle from guard.

    Now, if I was doing MMA/NHB, then I might prefer top, but since I'm doing Submission Wrestling which is mostly BJJ, I'll stand by prefering bottom.

    At least as a white belt, I can see why plenty of people at my level would prefer bottom. It seems like every day we're learning new techniques to try from guard, there's just a lot more fun because you have a lot of options to try out. I think I've been taught maybe 3 passes now, but like a million guard subs and sweeps I want to play around with.

    Or maybe my instructor just really likes guard :p
