time for my monthly update.... i think i'm developing the start of an open guard game. i'm really comfortable in that position for some reason. i mentioned the spider guard in my last update. i'm using that considerably along with the de la riva. i think the reason that i'm comfortable in it is that i've forced myself to keep guys in front of me because i hate being side or full mounted. also starting to develop bit of a closed guard game. haven't had success yet, but i've had a couple very close instances of putting someone in a triangle choke. close but no submission yet. you know what i stink at (amongst other things)? getting out of a guillotine. i've had a lot of people do this to me lately both on the ground and in standup mode. either they don't like my face (entirely possible) or i'm leaving something exposed. have to work on the escape. any particular advice on escaping the guillotine?
