“Yes Gina, what is it?”
“Why don’t you roll with Fuji, and try to pull him into your guard?”
“That sounds like a wonderful plan! What could possibly go wrong with pulling a mountain down on top of me?”
I really need to stop resorting to guard all of the time. Sure I might be decent at it, but there are times when it’s not the best idea. Yet, it is always my go-to move. If I’m not on your back, then I’m probably on mine. When people have me in side control or mount, I don’t even try to reverse them most of the time, because it’s just easier for me to get to guard (or more commonly, half-guard). Even when I do manage to reverse people, I am not aggressive enough in taking the top position. I just stick with what’s familiar.
I need to always remember what Will told me yesterday…”I’m very unhappy with the way you just accepted half-guard when you could have mounted me. Don’t do that anymore.”
