You're holding your opponent to you instead of creating space, I'd be saying thanks.
i like the knee on belly option if i can get it, but my transition there is pretty weak. what i do find, though, is if they cross the knee like that, their mobility sucks and it's easier to surf to the other side and start attacking from there instead.
This video is so much better than the youtube. I cant even watch my youtube videos anymore. They make me cringe.
I do have something for the foot grab! its easy but hard to explain online. I position my left leg (the one not being grabbed) in a way that blocks them from grabbing it
People who do this are giving you an arm triangle. I like to grab there shoulder and use heavy shoulder pressure until they move there hand up close to my face or head and do this...

The arm triangle option above is very good also, if you can get that arm scoop.
I am holding my opponent, also controlling his movement. I decide when I want to make /remove space and when I want to escape, if I pull my leg closer to my body it will open up space and I will then proceed to straighten out my leg, shrimp and put my knee inside,(moving quickly). .
I usually will only do this when i'm tired and am more worried about them getting mount or going to north south than sweeping or establishing my guard. I do this especially for people who are real spazzy and it will stop them from doing anything. My far arm will usually be under their throat so I don't get americana'd or Kimura'd. BTW I'm a white belt.
Any one see any major flaws in this defense, other than while i'm holding it I cant really do much? Or subs or sweeps I have from this position?
Whenever someone puts their leg up like this it glues their hips to the mat, never a good thing in JJ.
that shit is MOUNT CITY SON, get with it
I use this defense when I'm tired and it's decent at stalling but not much else. I frame for it though by pressing my arch into my knee and then base off the leg to drive into their side While my elbow presses the hip from opposite side pinning them a bit. People get around it by just abandoning mount and taking submission options, but if you're quick u can use sub attempts to initiate a scramble. Still, mostly used for stalling and as long as u just move on to north south or begin working for a sub they will gain nothing from it on bottom.
Edit: I am a one stripe white belt so my advice is purely from being the guy on bottom and just shedding light on how they make me pay for it
I've heard that "defense" called the "TV watching position". As in, you should only be in it when you're watching TV.
Me talking about this position on the bottom and why I don't like it (It's 16 minutes but I talk about different things):
Thanks for watching,
Great info on the theory behind the position jaysculls. You and tumpet dan probably have the best BJJ vids on Youtube in regards to both mindset and technical skills.
people who do that are just asking for a leg turk
