From looking at Gracie University curriculum online, I can see that they teach both "street" guards and "sport" guards. For example, they specifically refer to butterfly and spider as sport-specific guards.

I'm curious: what does the Gracie Academy teach as their basic open guard for self-defense purposes? I assume it would be something that works both gi and no gi, etc.

Thanks!

I may be wrong but I believe the core revolves around their "punch block series" that has 4 or 5 phases. Phase 1 is closed IIRC and then it opens up. Part of the Combatives. Good info based on what I have seen. Phone Post

For RGJJ: Upkicks to the grill and throat, axe kicks to kidneys, base of the skull and neck, knees to the orbitals, uppercut heels to the chin, etc. If a person puts your back to the ground in a fight, make them pay. The fastest submission is a good punt to the chin.

Feet on hips with the shins controlling the inside of the biceps, hands cupping the triceps/elbow. Control the distance and the inside and you won't get hit Phone Post

I am pretty familar with what SBG has taught v. punches: feet on their hips, elevate your hips to create distance, capture arms, shins in biceps.

The "punch block series" sounds pretty similar.

There's also a de la riva type guard where you use one hook to keep yourself turning with a circling opponent with the other foot on the hip. Phone Post

I think it is more or less the same Phone Post
