When you are facing a strong defender, it can be hard to finish the head inside single leg from the low position. Especially if your form is off and you are bent over.
Instead, take the high ground by pulling the leg out from between your legs and up to your chest. Now their balance is much more compromised, and your posture is much stronger. You can still the same basic finishes such as the back trip, back sweep, and running the pipe from the high position, and many more.
One thing to keep in mind is the control of the ankle. If you are just wrapping around the ankle like a guillotine, a skilled opponent will twist away and kick out. You have to secure the ankle by controlling the big toe.
