I've heard it many times that you should usually try to stand up immediately after shooting a double or a single. You don't want to be stuck on your knees. However, for some reason, it seems to be working better for me lately, in my submission grappling classes at least, to execute my single leg attacks as follows:
Snatch one leg with both arms (maybe from an underhook), standing to the side of him instead of in front of him, drive my forehead into his ribs to offbalance him if I can, DROP my inside knee to the mat between my opponent's legs, circle my head to the outside of his hip, hug his leg very tight to me with both arms, stay very upright, release his leg with my inside arm, grab his other leg, and then either
a) take him backwards (from my perspective) and sideways by pivoting on my knee and pushing sideways with my head as I look up and lean back and to the side
b) take him forwards (from my perspective) by wrapping my leg around the outside of his leg and driving straight into him.
So essentially, I look to hug one of his legs very close to me as I am beneath him on one knee and one foot. From there, I have those two options, at least. It seems to be easier to get this extremly close to a leg if you get down on one knee. But I'm not sure if I'm correct about this.
This tactic seems to be working well for me, especially against much bigger guys against whom I find very hard to stand up after a shot. Note that all I want is to take the two of us to the ground, since this is submission grappling. I don't really care how we get there, although I prefer ending up on top.
What do you guys think about this tactic?
