Tag Archives: Knee on Stomach
The knee on stomach is a dominant ground-fighting position in which a fighter attains a good base to ground and pound his opponent. The position is usually attained from side control or during a transition from the standing phase to the ground because of a takedown, strike, etc. The fighter controls a supine opponent by placing one of his knees across his rival's stomach. To stabilize the position, he posts his free leg on the ground. The term is interchangeable with "knee on belly."
