when an opponent shoots in on a leg whats the best way to counter after a sprawl, is it to push the head down and try to crossface then go behind for a point OR try to get a whizzer in then pull the man up and go for a trip/throw,(much like you see a lot now in mma). does it depend if the heads is inside or outside? what do you guys prefer????

my young son wrestles so im always watching and reading stuff for advice for him. a lot of the time i find stuff hes taught at his club is varied, sometimes even contradicted, from stuff taught on videos by the likes of smith, kolat, sanderson and the russians etc on you tube. i know which opinion i prefer but i get a dirty look if i tell him to do different to what his coach says!!!
