When it comes to submission specialists one of the most reliable forms of bringing a lesser-experienced opponent down to the ground in hopes of working your BJJ-based magic has to do with “pulling guard”, a move involving one competitor latching on to his/her adversary and willfully dropping down into a “guard” position.

One of the masters of the craft is Eddie Bravo who heads the famous 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu brand. In this MMATraining Technique of the Day, Bravo offers some insight on pulling guard and why it is/isn’t necessarily a good idea.
