Here is a video breakdown of the errors and solutions with the Kimura that “Thug” Rose Namajunas used Against Andrade at UFC 237.
My girlfriend is not trained and much smaller than me, so you have to pardon the clunkiness in the execution. But, I highlighted the two big mistakes Rose made so you don’t make them in the future.
One thing I forgot to mention was head positioning. I always look to have the head inside for the Kimura Trap as it will naturally break their posture and makes the sweep easier. Andrade did a good job of switching the head to the outside for a high crotch that allows her to posture up easier.
That said, a good leg hook and shoulder pressure will still prevent the lift. You can check out the KimuraTrap.com website to learn all about the Kimura Trap System which has over 11 hours of detailed video instruction that is updated regularly for free.
