Half Guard Bottom Leg Fighting

One of the things that beginners often don’t know how to do is to leg fight from half guard bottom. We are by nature upper body centric and sometimes it doesn’t even occur to us that we can use our feet and legs in much the same way we use our arms. In this video I’ll look at how you might use your feet and legs in a situation where you are in half guard bottom and completely flat.

When you are in half guard bottom and find yourself flattened out you will often not be able to make any space up top to insert arm frames. If the top person is doing their job you will find it nearly impossible to make any space at all. Here’s where leg fighting comes in. Watch the video to see how it works.
