Hello, and welcome to Jiu-Jitsu On the Go. I have the profound privilege of being able to offer and share the gift of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. I am a stand that everyone in the world gets this Martial Art in their life. It is truly transformational and brings about a higher quality of life for everyone. Here is a little about me!
I began training Jiu-Jitsu in 1997, while stationed in Hawaii, under Grand Master Relson Gracie (ranked white-black) and was awarded my black belt in 2009. I met Master Caique Elias, as a blue belt, and would eventually seek tutelage under him when I became a second degree black belt. As a practitioner who was primarily exposed to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, my game is simple and effective. After 22 years of training (11 years as a competitor, 9 years as a head instructor and academy owner), my teaching style is concept-based, this allows for the student to experience noticeable results immediately. My goal is to impact your game and help you on your journey.
Welcome to JJOTG's online K-Bar Kimura series. Filled with sweeps, rolls, double rolls and many "taps", this series is sure to increase your finish stats with the Kimura from top or bottom position.
Please enjoy and give us your feedback on how this series helps your game or any questions about where you're getting stuck.
In the first segment of the online K-Bar Kimura series, we will be looking at the Kimura finish from bottom half guard with emphasis on framing the hip and controlling our opponents posture.
The framing of the hip will be key as we progress through this series.
In part two of the K-Bar Kimura series we look at the Kimura finish from top half guard or side control when our opponent attempts to roll through to escape. When the roll through starts, just hang on, go for the ride and let your opponent do the work.
One of the more common moves to defend the Kimura from the top is to drop the hip to the mat...(I told you the framing of the hip would come into play later). This hip frame will prevent that hip from reaching the mat and open up an easy sweep to finish from top half guard or side control.
In this last segment of the K-Bar Kimura series we are going to have a little fun with the double roll. This comes into play when your opponent rolls through and goes into a turtle defense...I don't think so.
