I present, for your edification, a very fine seminar given by Xande Ribeiro on the elements of guard retention, with a focus on half guard. Ever since I tore my right adductor I've used a ton of half guard because it causes me less discomfort and although I've been doing this for a while now, I learned a fair amount from this presentation. Give it a shot if it interests you!

Great conceptual tutorial. Useful even for me. I am at the stage when my main goal is to survive, especially so that I am a small guy.

I like the simplicity: smash, pass, mount, finish. How to do that is another question altogether.

Well this instructional is right up your alley with its simple formula for guard retention. As far as developing a solid technical base, try to spend as much time as you can sparring with people who are willing to do positional sparring at 70-80 % intensity.

For example, if you're working guard retention as in the video, it shouldn't be too soft, but if they pass, they should return to guard and start the process again and again so that you can repeated revisit the same sequence of operations. At some point, you will develop a sense of familiarity with the basic processes such that you can begin to tinker with individual elements of the position, i.e., what if I put my arm here, or my shin there, this time. Through the repetition and focused learning you can develop skill pretty quickly, like a musician doing scales.

Once you find what works well for you, then begin to drill it and use it full kill-mode sparring.
