Coming Up For Air

Didn't have time to stay for the full class, but I had time to get a couple rolls in with guys significantly bigger, stronger and more experienced than me, which was fun.

I've really been giving some people fits with my guard game, but so far it's been mostly defensive and I haven't been able to get a lot of subs out of it. One of our coaches showed me a way out of this today:

Guard to Back
* When they're in my guard
* Reach arm behind them and grab opposite shoulder blade
* Use this leverage to keep them down, and start working my way out the side
* Transition to back

I'll definitely need to drill this some in order to get it to work, but being a small guy the back is where I'd like to be and I think this has a lot of potential.
