    I hope it's okay, but I would like to ask a series of questions over time in regards to my bjj.

    BJJ / Grappling / Sub Wrestling -
    1) I've heard from many many people that when you have closed guard on someone (you're on bottom), you want to prevent space by breaking his posture. Opposite when you're on top (or in it). But then I've heard people saying when you're in a close guard, you don't want to posture up because you don't want to create space for the guy on bottom so he can sweep you.

    A little about myself: I'm just tall and skinny. 6"0 @ 160lb?

    :dunno: Sorry if it's a shitty noob question. I can go to Sherdog and ask but they'll just say do the Rickson or something :hs:

    PS. Get away Drag On. We know BJ Penn rocks.

    It really just depends on the situation and how good of a base you have.

    I normally try to prevent space while working to open guard...but there are times where I posture up hard if they have a good guard game and keep threatening me with attacks..
