    @The Q
    I am not an idiot OK? I have 10 years of MAs exp. and I can figure out stuff on my own, if know what I am looking for. The problem is, most of my exp. on the ground is based on throwing my opponent or knock him off his feet and then work my way to anything from there. It was always a follow up technique where my opponent was on the back. Now I am the poor guy on the back.

    So it sounds like you already know the answer to your own question.

    1)
    Stop worrying abut submissions, don't even bother going for them. If your issues is sweeps just work sweeps and don't worry about triangles and such

    2)
    If the guys that much bigger and pushes you down, look for online instructional on butterfly and spider guard and other sweeps that show you how to position and use your legs.

    This is assuming there's no option of better ground training.

    ... you are an idiot.

    you might have a base in standup, but you DONT have a base in grappling unless you're a wrestler or a sambo player and you haven't told us.

    Thanks, for the hint, I will get into this and ask again if I have some specific issues with the stuff.

    As previously mentioned, it's hard to give you advice over the net because we can't see what you're doing wrong.

    Joe is right though. Stop worrying about subs right now and work for sweeps instead. Ask your instructor to show you some, or worse, watch videos that feature sweeps.

    Also, try to never be flat on your back while in guard. Stay on your side or sit up to butterfly.

    your in Germany and there is NO Judo/Wrestling/Sambo/Catch or BJJ? I can't believe that. If you have a school around you see if they have a wrestling team. Go with that if all else fails.

    Judo is everywhere..... tells us where you live someone on here will be able to find a school.

    Yeah I know it is not the way to learn MA stuff over the internet or by video but since I have no other options at hand right now, I can either try it or keep on ignoring ground game at all and this is not what I want to do.
