15 Time World Champ Andre Galvao teaches different Sweeps & Variations from The Polish Worm Guard during 615pm fundamentals class on 01/03/2019.
The lapel guard is a very strong grip where you will be able to control and trap your opponent in your guard. Use this unfair grip control while playing guard...he will probably be mad at you cause it is super hard to defend it.
The lapel guard is a way to maximize your leverage helping on your results against bigger, stronger, younger grapplers.
With a systematic approach to locking down opponents and working for the finish, you can have a new total strong gameplan around the guard.
