Today I had a play with some basic options for opening the closed guard, going with the classic kneeling break followed by the double stiff arm. I like the latter, but it takes a bit of finesse and can be tricky to get into position for that. The standard one is safer, but again that needs some finesse and is hard to master, particularly with them constantly off-balancing you.
I threw in the hip shift sweep, as that's quite fun. I don't often get it, but it's a cool tip I saw on a Henry Akins video a few years ago. Handy for surprising people who rely a lot on driving their knee into your tail bone. :)
