Knee on Belly Pressure Submission
Rafael “Formiga” Barbosa shows the most effective way to finish the knee on belly submission. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu technique
The knee on belly position is great for controlling your opponent while transitioning, but did you know you can also use it as a pressure submission? If you want to submit from the knee on belly position you want to have your knee on your training partner’s sternum. You should be pointing your knee towards your opponent’s face. Once you have your knee in the right spot don’t put too much weight on your opponent otherwise you will destabilize your base. Your opponent will also start pushing back in an attempt to escape. Remember to stay light on your toes. From here drop your arms down and hug him, connecting your hands. Now you can use a push and pull type of movement to drive really drive your knee into his sternum. Pull up your training partner’s shoulder up while pushing down on his sternum with your knee. It is the combination of lifting and driving that will cause your opponent to tap.
