Kimura Trap System

A Triangle Choke for people that suck at Triangles – the Over Hook Triangle Pin


There are three types of closed guards I will play: Double Under Hooks, Reverse Kimura or Russian 2-on-1, and the Over Hook Guard.

I like the Over Hook, because it removes your opponent’s capability to effectively strike, gives you solid striking options, opens up a bunch of submissions, and it is very easy to setup.

One of the obvious attacks from here is the Triangle Choke. What is not as obvious is that you can pin them with your triangle and put them in double trouble. Even if you aren’t a good triangle guy (looking at myself), you can make this work easily for you.

Awesome controlling position!
But what kind of feet drill is the girl doing behind? Also looks awesome!

    David Avellan says October 13, 2018

    Yes you can, although it isn’t a great spot to attack from. If you get the Kimura Trap System, you will see how it will come about. 🙂 https://kimuratrap.com/story

Wouldn’t you get stacked first? In MMA, the guy on top is usually standing in the guard… Wouldn’t he push down on you?

    David Avellan says January 3, 2020

    They can always try to stack in any triangle. The key to keeping people down is it keep their weight forward.you can accomplish this by focusing on keeping their head down, and also do a reverse army crawl away from them
