Tag Archives: closed guard

The closed guard is a fundamental defensive position in which a supine fighter traps his adversary between his legs. He wraps his legs around the opponent's torso and secures the position by crossing his ankles. From the closed guard, competitors control top-positioned opponents by using their own hip and leg muscles to pull opponents in and push them away. In conjunction with the hold, fighters also can use their hands and arms to strike, grab, block, parry and pull in opponents.
