wouldnt it be better to have him stepping forward when you penetrate instead of have him going back?

Either way works.

If he's moving back, you have more momentum to carry you forward as you drop and, when you catch his knee, his upper body has momentum going the wrong way (for him) so there's a better chance of him landing on his but without ever being able to sprawl well.  This is what I tend to use more often, but everyone has their own style and comfort zone.


If he drives forward back into you, and you can get his upper body pushed up so you're clear to his leg, you'll drop straight down and he'll tend to fold over your shoulder.  Your back really has to be locked here and you have to tilt farther forward so he doesn't plow you right over the top of your own ankles to your hips or back.

When I start someone on this new, I have them set up with an opponent on his feet in a superman photo op position.  Picture superman standing with hands on hips, feet apart and chest puffed up (billowing cape and pearly smile optional).  Offense sets up with opponents right foot between their thighs, good wrap on leg, head tight, etc.  I'll then have superman walk around the mat.  Offense has to clamp the leg with everything, including thighs, and get carried around a few steps like a growth. Then, on the whistle, their goal is to hold that position and that's it.  Superman has to get away.  It'll give you a good feel for the best hip, shoulder, head and arms position to be in.  Once you've dialed in that position, the next step is getting to it from your feet.  Practicing with them charging you and you charging them till you find what works best for you is where you start.

When you feel it's time to bury your guns.......It's time to dig them up.

is this right

Lets say you are attacking his left leg

1. From a collar tie you circle the leg towards you
2. You lower your level and grab the knee w/ left hand
3. You drop to both knees with your back straight
4. Your right hand comes around and grabs the ankle

Heres the basics in a nutshell as taught to me over 30 years ago by Gray Simons.  From inside tie(your left hand),circle his right leg to you, lower your level, step outside(with your left), reach inside(with your right), pull and sweep.  Finish with any standard single leg finish.  That is the knee pull single.
