To attack from the closed guard with sweeps and submissions you need to first need to off-balance your opponent with Kuzushi. This clip is from https://www.grapplearts.com/the-gripfighting-and-kuzushi-formula-with-rob-biernacki-and-stephan-kesting/ and shows you one of the best ways to disrupt his balance, his posture and his alignment in order to set up your own attack.
Without Kuzushi just deploying ‘a technique’ at your opponent from the closed guard is unlikely to work unless he’s a beginner. After all, every technique has a counter. But once his alignment is compromised then he’s much less able to prevent the sweep or submission. Kuzushi kills the counters.
Once he’s off balance with his alignment broken he’ll be much easier to deal with. He won’t be trying to pass your guard. He’ll be so off balance that all he’ll be thinking about is recovering his position.
His frantic reactions to get back into position actually give YOU the opportunity to launch your real attack.
There’s no such thing as magic in BJJ, but properly applied Kuzushi comes pretty close.
In The Gripfighting and Kuzushi Formula you’ll learn exactly how to apply kuzushi to triple the effectiveness of your guard in both gi and no gi, against both standing and kneeling opponents, and from both the closed and open guard.
