A Short Cut

Some people like to bypass the pass by just going for a footlock. Some people like to bypass the open guard or guard by holding onto half guard.

I guess then inversely if becomes very difficult to pass or use any of your attacks from cross side, mount, back, knee on belly, etc. if you only go for leg locks. It also makes it difficult to play guard, open guard, all the sweeps and submissions from guard if you just hold onto the half guard and never try to get to guard.

I know some people who complain about never being able to pass and never being able to get to full guard. They also always dive for footlocks and hold onto half guard for dear life...
