One of the things I impart to my students is that bottom turtle is not a resting position. Too often I see an overreliance on hanging out in that position, when it really isn’t that beneficial. I understand that from a competition perspective it keeps you from giving up points, however the goal then must be to return to a position where you are less vulnerable. In the gym, I think we could all benefit from holding our partners accountable by attacking the turtle more aggressively and forcing action in a position that can leave them vulnerable in outside situations.
