Oh and you should totally make a clinch takedown thread. I'm not very good in the clinch so I wouldn't know what aspects of it to dissect and discuss.
I find wrestlers aren't great in half guard either. You have your weight on their leg and from there you can attempt to do damage. Ovbiously side is the worst to have a wrestler in because chances are they will scramble and get up.
