I went with another variation on the entry into the crucifix tonight, adding to the walk back and the roll. Once again Aesopian was my main source. This time, once you have the arm trapped, secure a seatbelt. Then all you need to do is walk your feet forward, until you can pull back with your seat belt grip and move into the face-up crucifix. Very simple.

Teaching Notes: Main thing to emphasise for next time is that you must not reach in for the seat belt before you have the arm. If you do that, they will just roll you over. I was doing that to people repeatedly in sparring, so I need to make that risk clearer. If I teach it during my turtle escapes class, that should help do. There was a load of good specific sparring again after class, but I'll save that for the Tuesday write-up. :)
