I was told today that knee on belly is a show off move, and is considered being disrespectful. I had never heard this before.

Well is it? Phone Post

Most of the time Id say no but it can occassionally be used to put someone in their place if they piss you off. Phone Post

Uhhhhhh.....no. If it was a dick move, then why award points for the specific move in tournaments? Whoever told you that needs to get their panties smoothed out.

That's what I said. Maybe he was just saying his personal belief and not a everybody belief. Phone Post

If there were any time a position was a bit "showy" was being on top position during turtle and putting both knees on their back sort of surfing on the guy. :P

I think he meant the andre galvao incident where he body surfed the other guy for trying a heel hook. Phone Post

 I had a black belt get pissed at me for going knee on belly on him a few months back.  I think the guy was a little off though.  Same night he tried to fight a white belt that dove for a heelhook on him.

No it was between rolls, and I think the person in the previous roll tried it on him. Phone Post

People who complain about pressure in jiu jitsu are whiny bitches and should stick to point karate. In the words of Rob Kahn: "It's FIGHT training. Smash him!!!" Phone Post

I only stay in knee on belly when I'm dealing with spazzes so I assume if someone were to hold me in kob they aren't showing off. They're just angry at me. Phone Post
