Kimura Armlock from Top Half Guard
The Kimura armlock is a bread-and-butter move in BJJ, but not many people know that they can use it from on top in the half guard. In this technique Marcio Feitosa shows you how…
Marcio (dark gi) is in Marco’s half guard. Marco has his left arm under Marco’s armpit.
Marcio encircles Marco’s left arm and stabilizes himself by gripping his left knee.
He now forms a figure four with his hands, trapping his opponent’s arm…
…and twists his body until he faces the floor, pinning the wrists on the mat.
To finish the ‘Kimura’ armlock, even with one leg still trapped, he steps over the head with his free leg and lifts his opponent’s arm towards the ceiling.
