We have a method. It is called win the scramble and finish on top. (I did check for YMAS before posting this)
Having said this we have been recently advised to fight to turtle rather than guard. Is that the consensus for other gyms?

Actually I'm going to disagree slightly with both of you but only with minor varying degrees. I get into arguments all the time on how to bridge guys forward. There's a three pronged attack. Again I'm holding a clinic this weekend and I'll be covering this so I'll see if I can get video.

There are plenty of ways of getting the guy off. The ones I have mentioned are the basic way that I teach beginners and plus I did not feel like writing down all of them.

After watching a lot of MMA fights lately I have found the ultimate escape from the ground and pound. Believe it or not it looks like it is a slightly modified Wing Chun technique involving a large number of very fast strikes with your open palm, either to the mat or to any visible part of your opponent.
From what I have been able to tell this drives the opponent off and sets up the perfect counter attack as he retreats with his arms in the air.

Would you be able to find video of this?
Are you talking about tapping?
