> Is he sitting up on you ? or laying back?
as I said, similar posture as in a reverse kesa gatame. He can't lay back if he still wants to have leverage on your legs, for one thing.
There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

So, I am curious to see if I am picturing this the right way:
You, applying the half guard to one of his legs.
Him, Left arm under you, either on his left side or moving to give you his back, his right hand prying his captured leg out of the halg guard.
Gi or no-gi?
I'm confused. :icon_shak
You're on the bottom, with his right leg in your guard.
Where is his left arm?

Should have taken pictures :-(
> So he is semi-cross body on you with one leg caught ?
Yes. But lying more on his left side he you normally would in cross-side.
> Where is his left arm?
His left elbow is somewhere in your left armpit.

Its always hard describing something liek this in words...
So, he is on his left side-left rear flank, his right leg is caught in between my legs, his left arm is in the crook of my left arm pit or on my left bicep.
So far so good?

Yup, that's it.

OK, now we are going somewhere,
So how exactly is his body weight placed ?
Is it his hip that is digging into us? in this case his left hip.

For those who might be confused.
The picture is not totally accurate. But its the best I could find. As in this case the guy on top does not have his arm (right arm)under the person on bottoms (right) armpit. And of course, the picture is reversed - the defender is trapping the top mans left leg.
When the guy on top is able to get under the guy on bottoms armpit he effectively blocks the man on bottom from using either hand to pull the guy on tops hands/arms away as he tries to extricate his leg. In effect he has shut down the bottom mans defense, and removed much of his offense. He has however placed more weight OVER the bottom man which allows him to be moved from side to side somewhat easier. This will be the key to sweeping, taking full guard, or at least defending the half guard.
1% Shark is better than you.

Yeah my first instinct is the same as Ronin's can you not reach up with your right hand and get a collar choke? I must be picturing somehting wrong.
