This week's Knee on the Belly (KOB) techniques are part of Week 4 of the GB2 module with Prof. Rodrigo Fajardo.
Have you checked out the GB Online Instagram account?
Prof. Rodrigo begins this week's lesson by showing us how to transition from Side Mount to the KOB position without sacrificing the opponent's control and giving the opponent an opening to replace the guard.
Video 1: Technique 20 - Knee on the Belly checking the arm
Prof. Rodrigo uses the "wrong knee" to initially check the opponent's defensive arm before moving to the proper KOB position. This quick movement eliminates an important part of the opponent's defense from the bottom.
Important detail: Note the majority of Prof. Rodrigo's weight is riding on the opponent's hips /belt. This makes any hip escape to replace the guard very difficult and fatiguing for the person on the bottom.
