It's good news when you're able to trap your opponent in the bottom turtle position, but it doesn't mean that you should give up on trying to advance your positioning. A good wrestler can escape the position by standing up, and a good jiu-jitsu practitioner can roll for a knee bar or scramble and pull you into his guard. If your opponent is exhausted and has little fight left, you can milk the position by landing some decent strikes, but if your opponent is fresh, you'll want to attach your chest to his back by establishing an over-under body-lock, hook his closest leg, and then work to secure his back by establishing your second hook. There are a couple of different ways that this can be achieved. You can establish your second hook by rolling to your back and pulling him on top of you, or you can establish your second hook by climbing up onto his back. Both transitions have their place. Deciding which one to employ boils down to the situation and what you're looking to accomplish.
