Hello! My name is Marc Zee. I’m from Arizona
Center of mixed martial arts. I’m here on behalf of expertvillage.com. I’m here to
demonstrate the kimura. The kimura is a shoulder lock used in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Go ahead
guys. Okay, the guy in the bottom is utilizing what
is called the guard. The guard is a position that the bottom person can attack. He can
utilize a various number of submissions, such as arm bars, chokes and kimuras. Today what
we’re going to demonstrate is a kimura, a shoulder lock. The guy at the bottom for
some reason plants his hand on the mat or someplace where he can grab onto his wrist.
The bottom guy then reaches around the elbow, the outside of the elbow, grabs his own wrist,
bends the elbow to a 90 degree angle, and brings it behind his back. One more time.
The guy on top plants his hand, he grabs the wrist, he reaches around the elbow, grabs
his own wrist, brings it to a 90 degree angle, and he brings his leg to the middle of his
back so the can’t front roll. If he front rolls out of this, the leg comes out front
roll out as an escape. Okay, one more time. Okay the kimura, he grabs onto his wrist,
reaches around the outside of the elbow to grab his own wrist. He brings the arm to a
90 degree angle, brings his leg across the middle of his back, then he wrenches the wrist
all the way to the back at a 90 degree angle till he finishes the tap. That is a kimura.
