    An opponent tucked into a ball and resting on his knees and elbows is, perhaps, the most difficult Ground Play situation that there is to deal with.

    The turtle is for Judo only, and is not good for BJJ, MMA or other submission arts (they'll take your back).

    Or wrestling too; although, it is only a transitional position there.
