    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Thanks jnp. Am internalizing.

    I had never heard terminology for same-side/cross-body half guard before. I saw the distinction, but had never heard it named.

    You can thank Jack. He asked me to help you out. I realize I come across a bit harsh, but I am, in fact, a grumpy old man.

    The cross body half-guard only works if you can stay on your side. The moment you get flattened out, your mobility is severely limited. Block the cross face by placing your hand on your forehead and making a frame.

    IBJJF Berlin Open 2015, men's master 1 blue belt division. I forget the exact weight category but I was 77.7kg and at the bottom of my weight class. Won gold in no-gi after 3 matches (all won on points), lost my 1st absolute no-gi match by triangle/armbar, 1-1 in gi (both chokes), didn't stay for gi absolute because it was late and I was starving.

    My first no-gi match. It's been a long time since I've competed, and it shows. I won on points, something like 7-4 with 1-1 advantages I *think*.

    My third and final no-gi match. I win on points but I'm not sure what the score was.

    My 1st match in gi. He pulls guard, I pass, he turtles, I win by RNC.

    I got out-worked in the gi finals and succumbed to an Ezekiel choke from half-guard.

    Next time I will enter the adult division, pack a lunch, and try this "sprawl" I keep hearing about.
