What the hell, man? What is it with this submission? I mean, really. I couldn't hit one if my life depended on it (which is unfortunate for a leg lock stud like myself). Also, it's one of the the subs I get caught in most often.
Okay, okay I know what you're thinking (*cue dude bro voice), “Listen man, if you want to get better at knee bars, practice more knee bars and stop acting like a baby”.
I remember never getting a guillotine until well after I was a blue belt. I would try them and never pull them off. When someone would teach them in class, I would be dumbfounded. Basically after awhile I just gave up on them completely.
One day, my instructor was teaching guillotines and showed one little concept that changed everything. Suddenly, it clicked. I started submitting people with them all the time (especially from half guard).
Still waiting for that “Ah ha!” moment with the knee bar....What's that one sub you can never hit?
