Killer Knee On Neck Control From Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu!

Killer Knee On Neck Control From Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu!


Knee on Neck Control by Roberto "Cyborg" Abreu

In the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the neck on neck is a controversial position (and sometimes choke) where you place your knee on your opponent’s neck. It can be a very brutal way of controlling or submitting your opponent, making it a very effective submission. Often times, BJJ players think that knee on neck control comes down to brute strength, but there is actually a lot of technique behind it. Today we will look at a very effective knee on neck control technique from a man who knows the position possibly better than anyone else, Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu.

Flow rolling can be one of the greatest tools for learning and exploring jiu jitsu. This is a perfect time to explore new technique and concepts. Flowing is the art of movement. By focusing on the movement during your flow rolls, you will dramatically improve your game.


Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu is a Brazilian born Jiu Jitsu black belt competitor and instructor. His academy, Fight Sports, has produced more than several talented grapplers such as Hunter Edward, Jake Mackenzie and Ricardo Rezende. Cyborg is known world wide amongst jiu jitsu fans for his unique style and his trade mark position, the Tornado Guard.

Watch the video below of Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu demonstrating his knee on neck control and then we will break down his technique. Check it out now!

Cyborg starts this demonstration in side control position. Take note of how he controls his opponent by wrapping his arm behind his neck while gripping the belt or gi at the waist. Cyborg knows how to anticipate his training partner’s reaction whenever he moves. For example, he knows that when he pops up into knee on belly his opponent’s reaction will be to place his hand on the knee. Whenever Cyborg feels his training partner pressure his knee on belly, he slightly opens his arm and slides his knee onto the neck. Right here is the knee on neck choke if you want it. Simply pressure down with your knee and your opponent will tap. Or, you can use it as a transition. In this case, your opponent will be trying to hip escape. You can switch back and forth between knee on neck and knee on belly as he is trying to escape. This will be especially uncomfortable for your training partner as well as tire him out. When you are ready for the submission you should transition back to the neck and then pull your opponent’s head up to really tighten things up.

As you can tell, this is a very effect and brutal submission. What I like the most about this one is how you can use it to transition back and forth with knee on belly control. I am sure you have used knee on belly a lot. Let’s face it; it can be rather enjoyable watching your opponent squirm uncomfortably trying to find a way to clear your knee. It can be really exhaustive to try and get that knee off your stomach. Just imagine now having to deal with knee and belly and knee on knee, back and forth as you struggle to catch your breath. It is a really interesting way to wear a guy down and then hit an easy submission when he has got no energy left to defend.

So give this knee on neck control (and choke) a try the next time you are in a live roll or in competition. Remember, when you first learn this you should focus on getting the technique right before adding in speed and aggression. Things can get really uncomfortable for your training partner really quick. I hope you find this technique successful. Thank you Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu for demonstrating this knee on neck control for us today!
