But I'm not really able to do anything significant in the brief lapse that follows and we just end up in the same position again. Ideally I'd like to break his posture down by grabbing the back of his head, pulling him down, and then going for a kimura,elevator sweep,or guillotine. Any ideas?
If he's posting with his hands on the floor, he's just asking to be kimura'ed. You don't need to break his posture; instead, Let him do it to one of your hands, keeping fighting for grips and when you get one hand free, sit up with him, reach over his posted arm and try a kimura.
