One of your greatest weapons in developing a killer guard is flexibility. The more flexible you are, the easier you’ll be able to transition in and out of attacks, and the less your opponent will be able to force you into positions you aren’t comfortable in and exploit the gaps in your guard.
The nice thing about flexibility and mobility is you don’t need a training partner to develop it. You can develop your guard anytime, anywhere through a little solo drilling.
To help you get started here are four of my favourite solo drills to help improve your guard. These drills have been incredibly beneficial in my own training, hopefully, they can do the same for you.
Try these stretches and tactics out for the next 30 days and see how they help you.
