 This topic was brought up in the Atama forum and I wanted to get your take on it. We were talking about under hooks in half guard. I'm a smaller guy. I compete at 149-155 pounds. When I get with really big, strong guys in my half guard they use brabo, darce, and arm in guilotines on me. I stopped using underhooks on these types of guys and just use forearm in the throat to get my guard back or try to use forearm in the throat to get to half butterfly guard to sweep them. Is there anything i'm doing wrong with my underhooks? Got any half guard tips? Thanks in advance!

Try going lower and hooking around the opponent's leg rather than his waist. So when you go to your knees towards your opponent, you are in like a wrestling single leg position.
