The focus here is all on preliminary frames.
We're assuming that you've already reached the point where the kneecut can't be stopped. It's going to happen. But rather than hold on for dear life, instead you can give yourself some advantages in the battle to come.
That's what a preliminary frame is.
It's an early advantage for the position that is about to occur, and in this case, that's side control.
This is something that you can do to escape before the position is truly stabilized.
Anyway. Enough on that.
