    Hey Chechen,

    Since you started showing your unique half guard I have been using it and adapting it for myself. Now it's one of my strongest positions but I cant find any info about it online. Does it go by any other names? Im talking about the half guard with the knee on the opponent's hip and feet crossed together.

    Found this when looking on tips for getting the triangle from there.

    i actually do a half butterfly guard with an overhook. the position becomes even stronger when you free up the leg stuck in half guard and put it on their hip.

    i dont think theres a real name for this kind of position.

    i have a few videos on my hard drive somewhere that show some good stuff from that position.

    the video you posted is okay but the sweep was kind of gay.

    sometimes i want to post some vids but im really a nobody in the jiu jitsu world. i dont want to look cocky

    Yea, I guess thats true. I just thought this would have a seperate name like...
    lockdown/ half butterfly/ etc etc. I think Chech mentioned Z guard before but Im not sure.
