Having short legs and trying to play with Full Guard attacks can be tough. But there are some options that work really well for this body type.
I recently got a question from the Chewjitsu YouTube community page about playing a High Full Guard position with short legs.
The person asking the question is struggling playing off their back in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu because of their short legs.
I can relate! Because while I’m not short. I don’t have long legs. My torso is a bit longer and my legs are a little shorter.
So in this video I share a position I call Diamond Guard with our friend as an option.
This position was super useful in my own Brazilian Jiujitsu training and it’s been helpful to many of my students. Short legs and long legs alike.
It kind of gives you a check point. So that if you don’t have super long legs or quick hips. You can still be offensive and attack with submissions and sweeps from your full guard in bjj.
I hope this video is helpful, thanks for watching!
