Kneebar[ edit ] A kneebar is performed on the leg similarly to how the armbar is performed on the arm. A kneebar also known as legbar, kneelock or hiza-juji-gatame is a leglock that can hyperextend the knee. The basic kneebar technique is similar to that of an armbar. The practitioner will trap the opponent’s leg in between their legs and secure the leg with their arms so the opponent’s kneecap points towards the body. The practitioner then applies pressure with their hips, forcing the opponent’s leg to straighten, hyperextending the knee joint. A variation of the kneebar is similarly accomplished, but instead of holding the leg with the hands, the practitioner will trap the opponent’s foot behind one armpit.

BJJ tournament held at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan. The tournament included about 85 participants who were organized by weight class.

They were talking about transitions, and how important they were in BJJ. They were saying that the person who created the most advantageous position through better placement of their controls during transition, will likely take full control of the bout or something similar. Now at the time I knew these words were very important because you had two heavyweights of Jiu Jitsu both agreeing with how important it was.

One fighter is passing guard, the other framing, hip escaping, and trying to regain guard. The fighter passing wants to pin the person on bottom and get his points for passing guard and establishing dominant position. Now — if you are like me — you accept that, and then work it into your game, accepting that controlling the spine through the cross-face and securing that control using the underhook is the best way of stopping the bottom player escaping.
