Ok, so I have self-named this reference position a while back, but I am guessing it has a real name. We did some moves from it in MMA class and I am now wondering what that real name is.
The Prude Guard: From open guard put a knee/shin into his chest and as he stacks, straighten out your body and put the other knee in his chest. Your torso should be straight, your head neck should be the only part on the ground, and your knees/upper thighs should be together. This is to create distance and to keep him from getting between your legs, hence why I called it the Prude Guard. In this position you have to be cognizant of your ankles being out there and of being stacked, primarily.
Does this position have a name?
I actually hope not, because I have named some moves off of it, such as Whore Drains the Wallet, No Means No, and Prude Takes a Walk to the Back.

The you just got passed/leglocked guard?
It sounds more like a transition/set up to a triangle/armbar (I'm assuming your have control of his arms).

I do not see a good transition to armbar/triangle from here. Your knees are together in his chest and your body is straight as if standing from his chest, with only your head/neck on the floor. In this position, I am distancing my face from his hands, as a defense to GnP; I care more about controlling his ankles.

Where are your ankles? are we talking about a flat butterfly guard or an inverted one?

The feet are not hooking his body; your ankles are pointed away from his torso.

Ok, and what stops him from turning you like a steering wheel?

His base is a bit far out initially and I am staying active by going for and controlling his ankles as I straighten into the position.

Ok, I was thinking about it from the knees. I suppose you can transition to open guard easily if he drops down onto one knee.

Actually, you can't go to open guard if they drop their elbows first.
What do I know anyway? I'll shut up and wait for the voice of experience.
