Regardless of what style you practise, attack and defence go hand in hand. No attack can be performed without leaving yourself available to be countered, weather you are throwing a punch at your opponent, attempting a takedown or throw or trying for a submission hold.
When trying to pass your opponents guard there is no exception. There are many simple and very effective guard passes but they do leave an opportunity to be countered.
The following video is a demonstration by Stephan Kesting of grapplearts.com (a website worth checking out by the way) of two well used guard passes and counters to these guard passes. What is good about these counters is that when performed, they enable you to be on top of your opponent rather than still in full/half guard. Enjoy!
