Who has the best Guard?

    If you haven't done so, log on and post at the OntheMat forum at http://www.onthemat.com/forum

    With the controversey surrounding the comments from Rickson Gracie about Minotauro's guard for MMA being "weak", we figured we'd ask you, the gentle readers of OntheMat to sound off with YOUR opinion on who has a good guard.

    (And to see an excellent interpretation of Rickson's comments, see

    http://www.onthemat.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=189)

    Notice we are leaving this open for a lot of interpretation. Are we talking about the guard for MMA or Sport Jiu Jitsu? Open or Closed Guard? Is the guard merely the ability to fight off of your back? Is the guard dead? What exactly consititutes the guard anyway?

    State your case here for your favorite kind of guard, and your favorite practioner of the guard. Very shortly, the editors of OntheMat will reveal our picks for the top ten guards in the sport, and give you plenty of video and insight to ponder!
