Advanced 50/50 Guard

In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the term 50/50 refers to the legs being in the same position from both grapplers. Although it sounds like a disadvantageous position (or at least an even one), it is one of the fastest developing positions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. When the position is equal, the person with more knowledge has the advantage.

In study of Black Belt matches at the 2017 IBJJF World Championships, nearly 35% (65/186) of all sweeps were from 50/50! No other style of Guard even came close to the total number of scoring sweeps.
