Teaching #823
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 12/12/2018

This is one I was shown by Jeff Knight at Heidelcamp 2018. They have a knee shield. Step your foot up to their bum, then drive your other knee over their stomach. You want to get the point of your knee to the heel of your stepped up foot. Push into them and lean in order to bring your knee leg out, so you can sit on them, facing their leg. You want to fully sit on them, heavy.

Pull their bottom foot in towards you (assuming they have the leg crossed under the leg your want to attack and are facing). Step over the shin of that bottom leg, to trap it and prevent their rotation, triangling your legs to secure it. Grab their top leg, drop back to the other side, put their leg under your armpit. Apply hips for kneebar. 

It is worth noting here that Jeff fell back towards the other leg, which feels much stronger and easier in terms of configuration. It is possible to fall the other way (like I do in the video above), but Jeff's method is the way to go. I'll put the video of that in here once I've uploaded it: there's the usual backlog getting my Instagram posts up. :)

Teaching Notes: Falling over the other leg (Jeff style) makes a difference, it's a little easier to get that armpit lock over their shin from there.
