We haven’t drilled breaking posture yet and its really affecting my style. I’ve never personally pulled guard because I am not good at controlling the other person just yet and I think its mostly because Them -> Good posture -> Starts driving elbows in -> me grabbing elbows / collar combination (pulling for my life) -> nothing -> Get into half guard because I feel better control. Basically doing the first part of this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syiDiOyAL9I . If there are secret steps I would highly appreciate a share!
Issue: Short stature 5′ 5″ ; Short stubby legs
Difficult closing guard on 70% people let alone pulling in with knees.
