I got a bonafide purple belt in a omapalata using the guard, and I have good flexibility but I am no bj penn. added to that the guy I caught also trains using rubber guard techniques.

basic grappling cant help you if you are tried up in knots by someone that knows what they are doing.

thats kinda why Bravo beat Royler Gracie
Bravo didn't use any of his rubber guard techs on Royler. Royler and Eddie where going at it they got worn out and Eddie slapped on an old style triangle for the win.

I don't have the flexability and it doesn't really fit my style. I prefer open guard when on the bottom. I like distance between me and the guy on top of me makes for better scrambles and it's harder for him to cook me.
