Bottom- I'm pretty confident in my guard and am pretty good at recovering it from bad positions.
I'm pretty much the same, except due to the lack of formal bjj training, I'm a little shakey at recovering the position. If I lose it I frequently will find a way to give up my back so I can slip out from there. Normally though if people get past my guard it's because I got a little over zealous with a submission attempt. I'm EXTREMELY aggressive with submissions from my guard., and I love chaining together sub attempts. My favorite setup is a basic one, but still effective. Throw up a triangle and as the adjust to get out quickly swivel the hips and turn it into an armbar. I'm great with the submission aspect. Some of my buddies that do have formal bjj training say I'm really good with the subs but I need work on some position stuff and sweeps, and that I need to cut back on the number of risks I take.
