My teacher consultancy lesson continued work on the knee-bar. This included a revision of the front and back spinning knee-bars from the top position before we began work with the knee bar from the bottom position. In this latter instance we began from the half-guard shell. This is quite a big departure from the lockdown style of fighting we were using when previously attacking from the half-guard. The half-guard shell uses more a knee and shin sheild to frame an opponet rather than going in deep.
