You may think getting those legs open was they hardest thing you've done in a while. Well, unfortunately those white belts have been doing their homework. All too often, you'll get stopped dead in your tracks with all those crazy fancy guards named after animals or Portuguese nicknames you can't find the origin of.
The point is - that shit ain't fun. So, how do we beat it? Just listen to Jeremy Arel, he shows us two very simple, yet effective open guard passes. Both utilize the knee drive, and Jeremy is nice enough to show us two variations: the first with an underhook and the second without.
