Hey guys and gals, following on from our splitting the closed guard video we thought we would reverse the situation and take a look at how to stand up from inside closed guard.

Again this is a position used within MMA a lot and you will see guys grind it out on top. Being underneath can mean we are losing the fight, here we look at ways in which to gain the space create a frame and stand up.

Pay close attention to keeping that frame, this keeps control of the space between you and your opponent. With out this frame the stand up becomes practically impossible.

Any comments or questions just give us a shout…
