When I first learned the Kimura, over 15 years ago, it was as a simple jiu jitsu submission from the closed-guard.
As my journey into the art has progressed and my understanding increased, I have found it fascinating to discover that there is really so much more to this hold.
Not only can it be used to submit an opponent, but also as both a sweep and a control method.
I’ve pieced together an example of each of these into this video sequence. Enjoy!
