    Attacks from knees with pics!

    Since this question has been asked multiple times, and a picture is worth a thousand words, I thought I'd post two ways to get on top of your opponent when starting from knees.

    Firstly, you need to have good base and posture. So keep both of your knees on the floor, and your butt on your heels. Keep your arms in close to your body (think Tyrannasaurus Rex). A lot of people reach out like zombies and try to throw their opponent which opens them up to double and single leg attacks from the knees, duck-unders and snap-downs. It also means that if you do this against someone stronger then you'll lose. Now get in close so your forehead is close to theirs.



    Use your right hand to quickly push their head to the side.


    Drive your head into the left side of their neck.



    Re-align your body so your spine is straight (so you're now off on maybe a 15 degree angle). Their spine should be bent and yours straight. Your right hand grabs their pants at the knee, your left hand grabs their right elbow and you drive into them putting them on their back.





    Keep your head in contact with them and you should end up past their guard.

    This time when I try to grab my opponent's left knee he pulls it back.


    I reach through with my right hand and put it on the outside of my opponent's right knee.


    Continue driving with my head and put him on his back.

    In the first series of pics, would I be grabbing their ankle (rather than the pants at the knee) if they had no gi?

    THANK YOU!!! I have ALWAYS been clueless from the knees and people just tell me "well, you just gotta get a feel for it" It bugs me. :(

    chaossexmachina,
    I'd be overhooking with the left arm, and probably just hooking behind their left knee with my right hand instead of grabbing the pants.

    I usually pull guard from the knees. Either that or I get pulled into guard myself. I really have to work on my open guard passing. Cool stuff, thanks.

    I pull guard because my guard passes are strong, while I suck from my back, so I try to work on that as much as I can.
    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    "Step away," I hissed.
