The Reverse Triangle From The Kimura Trap

While I am not a big on going for triangle chokes, the reverse triangle is a powerful pinning position that lends itself to many submissions such as wrist locks, chokes, arm locks, and of course the Kimura. This setup from the Kimura Trap is probably the easiest way of setting up a reverse triangle that […]

When you can’t finish an Arm Bar, use the Kimura Bar

In my free time (usually before bed) I think about potential techniques in what I call DJJ – Dream Jiu Jitsu. 🙂 Sometimes they are total crap moves that only work in my head. But sometimes they turn out to be gold, and I believe this technique that I call the Kimura Bar to be […]

Always Use Your Seat Belt Backwards

I’m not talking about when driving of course, but when using what is known as the “Seat Belt” in wrestling. The classic seat belt in wrestling is when both people are facing the same direction and one has an arm behind their waist, the other with an over hook (or whizzer). This is usually a […]
