Whether you are standing up or on the ground, I was always taught that the head is a person's weak spot no matter what. Once you are on the ground, ultimately a good idea is to get control of the guy's head. Once his head is in a lock or in a compromisable position, the rest of his body isn't going anywhere or will be virtually helpless (especially if it hurts to move or resist). Try to keep his/her head in control and try to keep a position in which you face his/her back/behind/rear. There is obvious reasoning behind this and this probably belongs in the general grappling tips section but oh well

This is very true. Your head is the most important part of your body to protect.

360, I'm still not quite agreeing with you yet. If you're rolling around on the ground for a few minutes one of you is deffiantely doing something wrong. Maybe both. It should be ended as soon as possible.
