Ignatius,

Much, much easier said than done, you try getting to your knees after someone's hit you with a double-leg takedown and is positioning for a mount - your best option is probably to go for a guard and then try and get a sankyo/nikkyo.

If you can get to your knees, you can get to your feet, no grappler worth their salt will let you get back up once you're on the ground, disengaging from them is nearly impossible because they maintain very, very close contact.
Absolutely! IF you can get to your knees... and that's a BIG IF, especially if they have a weight advantage. Unfortunately, in a dojo/training scenario it's not "nice" to pinch or poke a nice exposed pressure point to get them off you in a hurry!
