Crack Open a Strong Full Guard with this Standing Break in BJJ
Being able to break the Guard in BJJ is an essential skill. But it’s a task that is not always the easiest, depending on the guard player on the bottom.
In this video I got a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu question from Tom who wanted to see a Guard Break from the standing position.
I have about 3-4 that I will regularly use.
In this video I show the “chair sit” variation to break open the legs.
The idea is simple. We work our way up to the standing position. And from there we position or knees and legs in a way that creates a massive amount of pressure on the hips to pry the legs open.
Now, as is true with every move, it’s not full proof. You have to keep a lot of control on the legs. Because as soon as the legs open up the person can trap your legs if you’re not careful.
So in the BJJ standing guard break video I show you what to do if that happens.
If you’re having trouble breaking the guard then I hope this standing break is useful for you!
