anyone been trying this stuff out? I like it, especially the half guard and top game, but I need loads more time to make a rubber guard game

Well I'm obviously not talking about Dr Who, so it must be 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu.

I guess your answer would be no then.

if we're talking Rubber Guard Specifically then i've tried it, but i think i'd need instruction in order to make it effective. Its great for breaking down posture and i did manage a cheeky triangle from it, although from luck more than anything.
I think 10th planet catches a lot of heat as it s well publicised and newbies look to it without knowing any fundementals. I find it intersting though despite still learning those fundementals myself

Yes rubber guard specifically is difficult, because have to learn and be fluent with a large number of techniques before you start to get an offense that hasn't got huge holes.
It gets a lot of flack from people trying it first when rolling instead of practising and drilling first.

It gets in the most trouble for insulting more traditional BJJ by separating itself from the gi.
