1. Opponent attacks with knee on the stomach.
2. Place your right hand on his left leg and your left on his knee. Push him to maintain the distance.
3. Scoot out to your left and work your right knee between his legs. Place your right knee tightly on his inner thigh. Put your left foot on his right hip. (The scoot to your left will make it easier for your knee to go through).
4. Turn him to his left side by rotating your body to the left. Opponent will fall. Pushing with your right hand will help.
5. Keep his leg trapped by squeezing it with your legs and wrap his right heel with your right arm.
6. Finish him by applying a heel hook.
