Knee on belly (also known as Kneemount) is a super-dominant position in jiu-jitsu. If you're using this position correctly then you're driving down into your opponent with all your weight, making it hard for him to breathe, and forcing him to give you openings for submissions (click here to read 3 Ways to Get a Really Heavy Kneemount on Grapplearts). Most typically the guy on the bottom of knee on belly will open himself up for armbar, Kimura and...

When I started doing BJJ the kneemount position kind of confused me... I knew that it was considered to be a good position, and I knew it led to a bunch of submission options, but still, it never really 'clicked' for me. I'd get to the kneemount and wait for those golden submission opportunities that I'd been promised. And wait... And wait...

Terrible. Price gouging combined with high pressure sales tactics. First these pirates come and charge me $550 to switch out a $10 thermocouple and install a $20 thermostat (which took about 30 minutes). Then as soon as their service guy leaves their salesman comes by and tries to give me a scare-tactic high-pressure close on buying a new furnace from them right away. Threatens to shut off my furnace and report me to the authorities unless I pay them to do more work on my furnace. I'd rather heat my house with my electric stove for the whole winter than call these guys again.
