    Half guard I still love it. So many variations to each his own. I prefer the knee shield/kimura trap type of half guard. Although Im growing into the deep half guard game more and more.

    From top in MMA I think this is great position for G&P.  I like it for BJJ too I feel less likely to be swept than I do from the mount.

    From the bottom, I really look at it as only a transition point to a better place (whatever full guard it leads to…or a sweep).  From my experience though it is not a good place to go voluntarily or to stay in.  This said I will go there or even to side on bottom with low belts/my students to let them work their offense (and me my defense).   I would much prefer a better guard with more control of myself and my opponents weight.
