Setting up the knee strike on the ground
If you are training with kicks and knees to the head of a downed opponent, or are lucky enough to have a fight where this rule set is allowed - here is a cool set up for kneeing your opponent in the head while in the top position!
I have the "Judo" position on Chris
I go to the "Headrest" position, trapping Chris's right arm
I raise up my left arm to punch Chris in the head. This move is actually a bait, as I am trying to get Chris to block the punch, if he doesn't block it - then I would just punch him - easy, huh?
Chris goes for the bait, and blocks my punching arm.
I shift my hips back to make room ....
... for my left knee to slide thru the top of Chris's right arm
I keep pushing my left knee to the mat to pin Chris's arm down.
Here is another angle of Step 7
You can switch the arm control by X'ing the right leg over the left and then pulling the left leg out, or by quickly swinging you right foot over.
I lift my left leg up, ready to knee Chris in the head!
