Rubber Guard – Grappling Technique
The “Rubber Guard” is a grappling technique used in Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, etc. This technique uses one arm and leg in order to control an opponent. This leaves the other arm available in order to submit or strike the opponent.
This technique was popularized by Eddie Bravo, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. Eddie is best known for his win against Royler Gracie in the 2003 Abu Dhabi Submission Wrestling Championships.
All grappling techniques are potentially dangerous and should only be practiced under the supervision of a trained martial arts instructor. For more grappling techniques, please visit Black Belt Wiki’s main Grappling page.
