https://howtheyplay.com/individual-sports/How-to-Do-a-Kneebar-in-BJJ

The kneebar in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is just like an armlock in many respects: it relies on hyper-extension to cause injury, you need to isolate the joint (which really means isolating the next joint up in the chain), and it's a straight joint lock submission. However, many gyms don't teach leglocks in general anywhere near as much as they teach armlocks, and as a result, there's an aura of mystery around the kneebar. This tutorial strives to get rid of this aura, while giving you a few different (relatively) easy ways to get into the kneebar, details on the finish, and what's really happening when a theoretical injury occurs.

That's the best part of the whole video.  

"You drove a whole HOUR to get here?  Holy crap!  Do whatever the hell you want!"
