You Are Two Steps and Less Than a Minute Away from Destroying Their De La Riva Guard
Invest One Minute and Avoid De La Riva
The De La Riva Guard is one of the most frustrating versions of the open guard that one can find themselves mired in. This version of open guard pioneered by the legendary competitor Ricardo De La Riva has been referred to as the "mother of open guard" not only because of the many different open guard variations it has inspired, but also because unlike some positions, the De La Riva Guard itself has never stopped evolving. It is still one of the most popular guard styles amongst the current crop of world class competitors out there today.
