GB Technique: Knee on The Belly Chokes

This week on GB Technique, we are going to look at some choke attacks from the knee on the belly (KOB).
Some jiu-jitsu practitioners look at the knee on the belly as a transition position to the mount. And don’t forget that under IBJJF rules you are awarded points for stabilizing KOB for 3 seconds.
