Execution of a Kneebar.

    After attending a recent seminar, we were shown various different positions to which you can pull a knee bar from.

    Since this seminar, my knee bar's have greatly improved, and im amazed at just how many positions you can pull a kneebar from. I've been seeing them from side control, from closed guard, and in the odd scramble for a dominant position.

    Most of the luck comes from when a sparring partner leave's they're leg unguarded whilst they try stack me when im trying for the armbar.

    The problem is though, is sometimes I find it difficult to generate the power to crank the kneebar on once im in position (it normally takes a few seconds of repositioning); and im just interested in your personal experiances with the knee bar. Weather you can provide me with any tips, techniques or recommendations on the correct positioning to increase the leverage of the kneebar.

    It's just an armbar on a BIG arm - same principles apply :D

    alex_000 You talking to me?

    A bit off topic but I would appreciate if someone provided a good link with the proper execution of knee bars (or othe major leg locks).

    And please no "google it" comments , I know how to search but I want a good link from people who already know how to do it.

    Unfrortunatelly judo doesn't focus on leg locks as much as it should.

    Nice website.

    We practice the bicycle kick and crab thing every lesson. Its really painful sometimes for the person standing up because you can get kicked in the shin and it really hurts!

    As for practising kneebars and stuuf, how fast can you practice them? I thought they were really dangerous, and that you can damage yourself really quickly when doing them...
