“In my opinion, passing the guard is by far the most difficult aspect of BJJ. If a guy has strong legs and active hips, dealing with his guard can be absolute hell.” — The Black Belt Blueprint by Nicolas Gregoriades
Guard passing is the Joker to my Batman; The Lex Luthor to my Superman; The Yoko Ono to my John Lenon. I just can’t figure it out. I read about it, and watch videos about it, and drill techniques for it, etc, etc, and still it vexes me to no end. I’m determined though. I will keep trying and trying. I take some comfort in the realization that I am not alone with this problem. The above quote pretty much sums up my feelings on guard passing.
