Passing the Guard in MMA - Dennis Kang


I found a neat little article from Denis Kang, via GrappleArts.com on Guard Passing in MMA.
What's the difference between passing in a grappling match and a NHB fight?

Well, for starters, the ability to punch makes it easier to open up the guard, as well as the fact that common-grappling-use under leg passes are a little bit useless. Also, sub-wrestling style underhook passes leave you wide-open to get punched in the face while attempting to pass.

So, read, learn, and enjoy.
