I have an extremely basic question, but one I really need an answer to. Can you explain in words (and, if at all possible, give me a photo or illustration) for the proper form of the kimura? We went over it so quickly in class the day that it was explained, and I didn't have enough opportunity to learn it correctly. 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).

Thanks!

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.

What is the importance of that style of grip?

My instructor said it reduces your range of motion so you can't crank the submission as much.

I've never seen anyone lose the Kimura because they were holding it this way. When you reach over with your other arm, and you are doing it correctly, the arm should be locked in pretty tight.

I just recently went over the side mount kimura (third video link) in class, so I really appreciate the link to a video that shows it to me again. Thanks!

Actually, I posted that third link by accident, I meant to post this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69jy8XnPymc But I'm glad that one helped.

Just a simple question:

When breaking someone's guard with your elbows into their inner thighs, is there any disadvantage in gable gripping your hands to prevent getting triangled? I do this but I don't wanna find out further down the line when rolling with experts that it opens me up for an attack.
