Posture Up Guard

Some fighters prefer to strike and set up passes while postured up in their opponent's guard, and others prefer to strike _ and set up passes while postured down. It all depends on the fighter and his personal preference. In my opinion, working from the postured up position is the best option because not only do you have a good base to work with, but you q can also come down with the full authority of your weight. And unless your opponent sits up, you're in no danger of CC getting swept or submitted. Below I show the basic positioning of the postured up guard, and later in this section I will ^ show how to set up strikes with passes and passes with strikes from this position. 0

I'm postured up in Beach's guard. Posting my left hand on his chest, I straighten my left arm to prevent him from sitting up into me. Keeping my right hand back allows me to pry his legs apart or throw a powerful punch at his face. To avoid being swept, I keep my back straight and maintain a solid base.
