So lets say you are on bottom and goingfor there right foot, you'll lean on your left side bring your right over there right ankle then push there knee with your left hand as you move your hips back.
This is actually a great point, ozz, and thanks for mentioning it.

Personally, I try and slip the leg out underneath their leg instead of working my hips out, to set up half-guard. Usually it isn't much harder (though I have pretty good flexibility and am relatively small).

Then I use the traditional hip escape form to free my other leg and create space.
