Guest post by David Avellan, an ADCC bronze medalist. Avellan has defeated many of the world’s best grapplers, such as BJJ Black Belt World Champions Rafael Lovato Jr., Tarsis Humphries, Amaury Bitteti, Alexandre ‘Xande’ Ribeiro, Roberto ‘Cyborg’ Abreu, and Rener Gracie.
Avellan is credited for developping The Kimura Trap System , a powerful submission system that counters half guard, turtle guard, and take down players with brutal efficiency.
One of the worst things that can happen after you hit the perfect knee bar is that you get cross faced and smashed within seconds.
Not only do you lose your hard earned submission, but now you are in a really bad spot. Well fear no more, this video I have my friend Bendy teaching a simple way of preventing the cross face.
Bendy is a BJJ Black belt and MMA fighter with a specialty in knee bars. He is to knee bars as I am to Kimura. 🙂
So watch this video and learn this simple counter to keep you in the hunt for the knee bar!
