This is an essential guard passing skill that you need to have by the time you're an intermediate level player
If you’re passing the guard then the very first thing you need to worry about is avoiding getting swept or submitted. After all, it’s pretty hard to use your killer guard passing techniques if your opponent hits a sweep on you and takes you to the bottom right away… That’s why in our recent instructional on passing the guard the first thing Rob Biernacki and I teach is how NOT to get swept or submitted. Today’s strategy, taken from that instruct...

Terrible. Price gouging combined with high pressure sales tactics. First these pirates come and charge me $550 to switch out a $10 thermocouple and install a $20 thermostat (which took about 30 minutes). Then as soon as their service guy leaves their salesman comes by and tries to give me a scare-tactic high-pressure close on buying a new furnace from them right away. Threatens to shut off my furnace and report me to the authorities unless I pay them to do more work on my furnace. I'd rather heat my house with my electric stove for the whole winter than call these guys again.
