    The second had no such reset.

    While pummeling from the knees and such has some value, too often it is kind of lame. Thus unless I'm starting standing I'd rather pick a spot (or have my opponent pick something) and go from there. Cuts out the arm wrestling from the knees.

    I don't always do that but find it a much better use of my time, particularly when there is a large (+ or-) skill differential.

    You begin with your partner in a dominant position. He either submits you or you escape. When either happens you switch positions and once both guys have been in both positions you get off the mat for a new pair of guys.
    The way we do these is to have about 3-5 pairs of guys and 3 minute rounds. Whoever is "winning" at the end of the round stays in gets paired up with a fresh body. If someone is submitted/escapes/passes whatever the person that started in bad position goes back to it (for the remainder of the round).
    We'll usually go for 5-6 rounds.
    Killer exercise and great training.
