Far Knee Block Problems and Chaining


The Under Hook is my favorite wrestling clinch with the Far Knee Block being my favorite take down.

I have won big matches using it, like in the ADCC World Championships 2009 against Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu. It is relatively low risk technique, with a high reward.

That being said, there are a lot of misconceptions about using the Far Knee Block. The main thing about the far knee block is NOT the knee – it is the shoulder.

I see people trying to pull the knee out, when that isn’t how this works at all. It is all about that shoulder you have the under hook on, and manipulating it to put them off balance. I discuss how to use it and show a few simple chaining options in case you have problems.
