Double Reverse Kimura from an Omo Plata

I think this is the last reverse Kimura I will show for a while, and it isn’t even a reverse Kimura. More like a double reverse, or inverse Kimura. I’m not sure anymore, lol! I picked this up watching American grappling legend Dean Lister, and it is a nice attack sequence that can give arm […]

Enter the Pit

the pit sweep

I have mentioned my affinity for the Flower Sweep before, and as a result I have discovered what I call the Pit. It is a position you get into after a failed Flower, that gives you more sweeps and submissions to attack from. It can also be entered from pretty much any open guard situation […]
