Single Leg X-Guard to X Guard
One of the most common things your opponent will do to try and escape your Single Leg X Guard is to push your feet off their hips and put pressure down on you.
Whenever this happens, I switch my feet to the X-Guard position.
The X position gives me better distance control and neutralises their attack.
There are a number of attacks from the SLX X Guard position, plus it's easy to transition to a regular X-Guard
In this plan, we're going to work two simple attacks from both these positions.
