Its called grappling/wrestling sport for a reason, so make contact, and try something. Dont
1 Push off when someone comes close to you.
2 Use the whole mat to run away
3 Don't stiff arm the whole standing.
4 Don't hang onto thai clinch for dear life, it aint thai.
Try a wrestling move, a judo throw or pull guard. You cant get punched, so no need to get worried.
Dont walk backwards, for every step you walk backwards, i will set a house on fire.
How about when you try to give up position at the start of a roll (turtle, lie on your side, whatever...) and they still won't engage?! argh!

Maybe people who take up BJJ just aren't that aggressive?
Something I don't understand yet (as a newbie) is why most clubs train from the knees when all fights in comps start standing.
Maybe this is why people are so timid on their feet?
I think most places train on their knees because of the space gyms have.
also sometimes if you start from standing as above they wont engage atleast on your knees it gets down to business quicker
how about guys that dont cut their finger/toenails and then come to training and expect to spar, (grappling and striking)

True, starting standing needs to happen more still.
