Graham that last one was... something else... Wow.
On my first-ever sparring night I got absolutely taken apart by a (very good and somewhat "rough") purple belt (he's now black), with a frequency of about 2 submissions per minute of rolling , -- but dammit, at least I wasn't groaning and screaming...

It was well worth the time spent as I learned to be comfortable underneath there, understood the typical attacks and how to defend and eventually was able to find the escapes. For a little guy, it is all about creating and finding the space to reinsert the knee if you are looking to recover guard.

Also if you hook the knee with your leg but go over it you have a waiter sweep with everything else being the same, although grabbing their belt with the other hand helps too.
