The shin-to-shin guard is not as famous as the de la Riva or the spider guard, but it is one of the most efficient guards in all of BJJ. The shin-to-shin guard is nothing new, but it has not been as abundantly explored as its counterparts. The position consists of switching the hook on the shin when you are doing the sitting guard. The hook, which was outside wrapping the opponent's leg, goes to their shin, but inside their guard. From there, you have a bevy of attacks to explore. In this video, Oliver Geddes teaches a foot lock starting from the shin-to-shin guard.
