Guard
The guard (in Judo sometimes referred to colloquially as do-osae or "trunk hold"; in Catch Wrestling, the "front body scissor") is a ground grappling position where one combatant has his or her back to the ground, while holding the other combatant using the legs. In pure grappling combat sports, the guard is considered an advantageous position, since the bottom combatant can attack with various joint locks and chokeholds, while the top combatant's priority is to transition into a more dominant position, a process known as passing the guard. In mixed martial arts competition or hand-to-hand combat in general, it is possible to effectively strike from the top in the guard, even though the bottom combatant exerts some control over the top one so is less advantageous but a defensive position. There are various types of guard, with their own advantages and disadvantages.
