During my last match I believe I performed horribly, but I learned what my key mistake was, so I am working on that. However, I don't think I performed so poorly on bottom. I didn't get any escape or reversals, but I did resist all the pinning combination he used on me for more than a whole period total. Is not getting pinned kind of like winning, but not technically?

Also, during my other match, I got pinned . BUT, I know I could have won if I escaped from bottom during the multiple times I had the chance. Question: When I was standing up from bottom, my opponent kept on tripping me down. How do I avoid these trips? He used so many trips on me that match.
