How to put someone in a Kimura? A Kimura hold is putting somebody's arm behind their head from a downward position to make them submit. Today, we're going to start from the down position in full guard. Where my legs are wrapped completely around them like so. From here, I would will to breakdown the posture of my opponent by pulling them down. when this happens, you see the opponent puts their hand on the ground. I'm going to grab their wrist with my hand, then I'm going to unlock my guard putting my far foot on the mat. So that I can scoop my hip out, creating space. So I can sit up, have my opposite arm go underneath and grab my own wrist. When this happens, there's space for me to push my hips through like so. Taking the arms slowly up towards the back of the head, pinching my knees on the body of my opponent. Bringing their arm and wrist up slowly to their head, until they tap to submit for the Kimura.
