One of Dominyka’s favorite positions is the closed guard, and here she focuses on breaking her opponent’s posture so she can set up her attacks. Her first method is to cup the back of her opponent’s elbows and pull in with her arms and legs. Another option is to make a two on one grip on one hand, and drag it across while escaping her hips to open up back attacks. Finally, she can grab both hands to break the grips on her belt, raise them up and push them out as she pulls her opponent in with her legs to break her posture.
