Wrestler Defense

We worked a bottom game in this class, but it was a bottom game in response to a particularly oriented top game.  Big with more strength than jiu-jitsu skills may do some of the following:
The Can Opener:  This can be defended by swimming one's arms out.  From there a sweep often presents itself.  Another defense is the armbar.
Wrapping up bottom's head and tripodding:  We drilled a variant of the elevator sweep from this position.

The hip work required for the above was giving some folks problems, so a portion of class was spent drilling this movement.
