I don't condone this at all. Telling/signaling the dog to do something and then disciplining it for doing what YOU asked will only create confusion.
I suggest the knee method but with some thought behind it. Whenever the dog jumps up, knee to the chest...if you can...have a neighbor/accomplice come over and have them do the same thing if the dog jumps on him/her and you can also keep the dog on a lead for control.
The key is consistency...if he tends to jump in certain situations like being around other people, keep him on the lead and as he goes to jump (hopefully the person knees him) you can snap the leash and tell him "no." I use "no" to stop ANY undesirable behavior.
Just my thoughts...
