One of the greatest female competitors of all time, member of the IBJJF Hall of Fame, Leticia Riebeiro shows us us her knee slice pass to armbar as featured in Issue 35 of Jiu-Jitsu Magazine.

THE KNEE SLICE PASS TO ARMBAR
Commonly used by competitors today, this pass involves pinning your opponent’s leg as you slide into a side control position. The challenge is keeping top pressure on your opponent as you transition into a more favorable position.

1. Grip your opponent’s inside pant leg as you place your shin over her inner thigh, pinning it to the ground. With your free hand, grab you opponent’s same side lapel.

 

Tip:  Stay tight on your opponent. Be sure your hip, shoulder and elbow are connected to them. TIP: This will help you remain heavy in transition.
