Or chicken(wing) soup for the soul So a recent thread had some discussion of the kimura, so I thought why not split it off so it has its own thread! Here is the Kestling video was covers a good standard grappling approach (he's a BJJ Blackbelt and is/was a CSW guy too) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qp0zShjuAbo&t=3s Heres a long (and legal) Ryan Hall video detailing a lot of concepts about Kimura/open elbow control - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mRsqvRduHY Heres Josh Barnet Going over his approach to the kimura - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhgOed0v9OI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35YWLWhMSlI ( I havn't included the kimura from standing/Non dominant position on purpose as I thought id do that in another thread if their was interest!) So lets pick a detail / or entire video and go from there! How do you commonly enter it, how do you finish, whats your secondary attacks, or positional transitions that you like to do? Personally I use it from butterfly loads like this -(garry tonan) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cG8jxHl0qow and use it to sweep and finish from top, or spin under to take the back/Armbar, if it fails from top flat SC I go to North south, if no joy, either tie up the arm if were wearing Gi and take the back/choke em, or if its no gi - go for a sideways triangle / yoko sankaku, if no finish either choke or bent armlock from their, if still no joy go back to NS and go to the armbar.
