Standing up from guard with Aesopian BJJ

Here's a neat video from Aesopian BJJ, aka black belt Matt Kirtley, demonstrating a number of ways of standing up from the guard position; the video reminded me of a seminar with my head coach Darren Currie on the scissor sweep last year.  From the scissor sweep position, Darren showed a way of standing up and attacking with the guillotine or loop choke, which really takes your opponent by surprise.
This video runs along the same lines as Darren's seminar, albeit from the guard position, but with practice, this will soon have your opponent on the back foot, giving you the upper hand, instead of having your guard passed.
Watch and absorb!
