Guard Passing: Structural Entry

‘We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.’ ~Albert Eintsein

Have been thinking if one allows a bottom player space enough to work a ‘Guard,’ we’re starting from a point of disadvantage.  At least part, if not multiple points of our structure have been compromised.

Along these lines, good Passing structure in theory should shut down a Guard players attempt to connect and create tension with their limbs.

For example, if constantly finding myself getting tangled up with a De La Riva hook I can either study all sorts of ways to pass ‘De La Riva’ Guard, or re-adjust my structure and entry to prevent it from happening in the first place.

Next, with a good structure in place, we can begin Passing.  Otherwise, it’s like trying to win a car race on one or more flat tires instead of taking the time for a pit stop.
