I'm not a fan of learning things the wrong way (takes too long to unlearn it before learning the right way).

Seems to me that the kimura has a ton of potential, but only when used right (it seems that you were alluding to this as part of... Hughes vs. Gracie... if i recall correctly).

Here are some videos that show how to correctly execute a Kimura.

As a side note, when you grab the wrist, do not grab it like most people feel is natural, with four fingers on one side and the thumb wrapping around. All five of your fingers should be on the same side.
