Closed Guard Top Postures

One of the easiest ways of getting stuck in the guard is being in bad posture. Bad postures allow your opponent to easily hold their guard, submit you, sweep, you, and do all sorts of other bad things.

Good posture, however, allows you to weaken their guard, minimize threats, and achieve good striking positions.

In this video, I go over 3 basic postures: striking, grappling, and broken. I will say even at a black belt level, its very rare to find someone who has the striking posture down 100% – they always miss one detail regarding head positioning that is crucial.
