Move of the Week for 6/25 – This week, Professor Easton explains and demonstrates the difference between the kimura and it’s variations. He also demonstrates passing the guard to either side.
100K Attacks and Switching Sides:
The kimura is one of the most standard techniques in jiu jitsu, and the american and straight arm lock are just variations of it. In this video, Professor Easton demonstrates the differences between all three and their proper uses. One of the key elements to take away from this video is the head control. As you’ll see, without proper control of your opponents head, you’re not going to be able to complete the move. Lock it down tight though, and you’ll get the tap in no time.
Stand Up to Pass Guard:
This is an effective way to pass the guard, and it’s not real hard either. It basically consists of standing up and sliding your opponents leg down your’s until you can pin their leg down with your knee. Then scoop the other leg, and you’re ready to pass. Notice how Professor Easton keeps his stance the whole time and keeps his arm in. If you don’t, you’re asking for the armbar.
