Thread: the kneebar

Hybrid View

    Default the kneebar

    this is quite a tricky submission to hit and ive always failed in the past, but im starting to hit it now and its better then ankle locks or heel hooks, as i think they are too easy to escape and people just dont want to tap to them, but kneebar's are excruciating and taps arent as hard on them,... plus they look a lot more slick

    hey look if you want something worth your time... fine but you better say thanks http://www.mmasaddle.com/ this did help me a lot, and that rolling knee bar when some one has your back is just fucking sweet

    My trainer (purple BJJ) said that you don't tap from a knee bar because of pain but because of fear.

    It would be very, very hard to break someones knee / mess up their joint with a kneebar, but people tap because they know of the long term damage it could do. Obviously I am talking about a straight knee bar.

    I've never done bjj, i've had to learn most of my stuff (apart from the basics) from videos and fights, i got caught in a kneebar i tap, stright away, last time it didnt hurt until it was too late, and after wards it felt pretty weird to walk on the joint didnt feel good so i always tap even if its not on

    your instructor is very very wrong & needs to be very careful what he tells students

    as they say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing

    your instructor is a cock then, Kneebars can ruin careers, along with heelhooks

    watch Danny Rushtons fight on fred Rado's pancrase show for a brutal kneebar
