Crooked Guard | Jiu Jitsu in Annapolis

This past week we worked the Crooked Guard series.  This guard gets its name from having your opponent’s arm pulled across your body and your guard locked from a side position.  Once this position is stabilized, your opponent is in constant attack for the armbar, triangle choke, sweeps, and various other attacks.

The Crooked Guard doesn’t require a lot of flexibility.  It is an excellent position to be used in both Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).  Since the Crooked Guard poses a different angle for your opponent, once mastered, it makes it difficult for your opponent to pass or strike you from the position.
