When you are controlling a turtled opponent, It’s important to combine back attacks with submissions. Your opponent can not defend both threats at the same time. This means that they will leave themselves exposed as they defend one attack.
A great option is the clock choke. You can threaten with it and if they defend, you can take their back.
