    You can work on hip mobility via different solo drills.

    On the pace thing, well, just get control of yourself and/or work on your cardio.

    Hey, you could do interval training using solo hip-mobility and other solo ne waza drills and kill two birds with one stone.

    Samesies, but I've never really thought of it that way. I usually find myself putting my feet on the hips to attack triangles or arm drags, and if that doesn't work, I'll end up in half guard or half butterfly as they try to pass and sweeping from there (or just getting passed). I've always considered said triangles, arm drags, and sweeps to be "closed guard attacks" since they occur when my opponent is relatively centered on me... But I also have short stumpy legs which I struggle to keep actually closed around and opponent.

    Which then makes me wonder, what actually does qualify as a closed guard attack? Collar chokes, arm bars, and wrist control triangles?

    I'd also chuck in Kimuras, head and shoulder chokes and an ezekial choke. Though the first two you are shifting out to the side a bit.

    I have a 29" inseam and tree trunk thighs. Closing guard on anyone in my weight class is a chore. It's hard to slide into a knee shield, it's hard for me to get a strong rotation in my sit-up sweep. I've been working the over-under sweep and I may have a winner there. Need about a thousand more reps on it to be sure, though.

    Kimura traps to sweep has possibilities for me. Most people bail out of my guard when I threaten it, though.

    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".
