I don't know that this is really "basics" in a sense, but I'm a bit stuck. At the end of every BJJ class, we roll a little bit. Typically, I'll partner up with someone and we'll start on our knees (so as not to give any person an advantage or having any oversized takedowns). My problem is nothing we've covered in class involves both people being on their knees. As such, I have no idea what to do, and (being reactively minded in the rolling) I find myself getting submitted without even being mounted (or getting a shot to go into a guard). In other words, from the knees, my partner will manage to put me in a guillotine or somehow pull off a kimura, leaving me in want of an actual technique to use... instead resorting to an ugly survival mindset.

I'll see if there's anything on Submissions101, but, since this doesn't seem a likely scenario outside of the classroom (either in competition or survival), I thought I would ask. So, any suggestions?

EDIT: Found this with a little research, it's a lot like what I was looking for. Sub101's Knees Strategy Consider my question answered, but any more tips/thoughts/ideas you may have would still be appreciated.
