Is your side control kimura “weak and anemic?” If so, or if you’re fiddling like a Renaissance carpenter trying to build it into a sturdy submission, gentleman and scholar John Danaher has your back.
“Of all the various joint locks we work with it’s kimura which often provides the most devastating finishes,” Danaher comments in the video.
To take the elbow completely out of the socket, reconsider your position. As Danaher (and Bernardo) demonstrate the ideal placement for your body is somewhere between north and south with one leg stepped over your partner’s head. Yes, it’s a little tea-baggy. It is also destructive as hell.
