Rolles Gracie – Single Leg Takedown Counters – BJJ Weekly #041

29 Nov

The kimura back take is something new that I have added to my arsenal, and I must say it has worked out very well for me. It’s a very misleading move in that it allows your opponent to believe they are coming up into a advantages position, but falling victim to the inevitable back take. This particular video has done the same with a very interesting twist. From a single leg takedown position! Since this move is working so well for me anyways, it’s about time I start drilling this position, and you should too! Catch your opponents off guard ending the fight with a crushing RNC.

No Gi ( Grappling ) Kimura For Triangle , Leandro Brassoloto

19 Jan

This is an awesome setup for the triangle! Very sneaky, and makes for a beautiful chain. Going to run a workshop on this in the gym and see what else I can come up with. Come down to 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Van Nuys and drill this with me!

10th Planet Jiu Jitsu: Basic Kimura from Guard

14 Jan

In this video, my training partner Gabe Calvento and I show a very fundamental movement in the Kimura. We’re going over this Kimura from full guard, when our opponent makes the mistake of putting their hands on the mat, we act fast and take their arm for the shoulder lock. Please check back here for more videos and on 10th Planet Watch
