    I bought X-guard by Marcelo and rubber guard by bravo. Both are cool.

    And I was given Forrest's book for my b-day a few weeks ago. He talks about penis a lot.

    Stick with something basic bro, Demian Maia has some good basic shit, anything from roger gracie.

    Seriously guys who focus on complicated techniques lose. Its better to be better at the basics, than medicore at the basics but have some tricky moves up your sleeve.

    Im a blue belt 67 kilo, i use the basics and I win in comps. Thats enough evidence for me

    I like the book the strategic guard.

    I am quiet drunk

    If your new (or even if your a blue belt) focus on posture, sweeps and maintaining dominant positions. I am a firm beleiver that white belts should only pick up on subs from what they see until they become a blue belt, when they should start learning subs. This ties in better for my motto and common bjj pracitse 'position before submission'

    anyone who tells you to learn rubber guard is an idiot, if you want to learn to trap your opponents down and thats your style of bjj try high guard, or shaun williams guard.

    Personally work on the basics till you are bored of them... then train them some more, its never enough. Fuck complicated techniques they never work. (also with basics you can chain them together more neatly which makes for a hard time on your opponent cause his guessing)

    That's a bit pretentious, I think.

    no more so than people like bravo out there trying to sell their guard system.

    It is my opinion that basics win fights
