Okay. Keep in mind my grappling visualisation skills are ****.

If you started to spin from here, I'd use my trapped leg to effectively trap your half-guard leg, and drag it back.
I've just come back from training, where I, along with my crazy inventor training partner who I'll call Polecat, have worked both the counter-kimura, your proposed offense, and answers to the counter-kimura.
We didn't like your approach (As I said, my visualisation skills suck. I'm a tactile learner) It's difficult enough to get the defending arm and isolate it, especially as the weight shift to set up the counter-kimura isn't really huge until you've grabbed the kimuraed arm with your defending arm. In which case, you've got a small timeframe in which you can either release your grip or execute our proposed counter-offensive.
It's actually easier to keep the kimura grip, unlock the half guard and put your outside leg over your opponent's head to isolate the arm, ensuring that you'll at least get the sweep and effectively negate the counter-kimura. In addition, it has the benefit of simplicity.

I just saw this exact move while watching Arona vs Sakuraba. Instead of sweeping, though, Sakuraba ends up kneeling and Arona gets up and starts kneeing him. But it seemed to work well enough.
I got the reverse kimura from mount because a white belt was dumb enough to try to do one from there. Huzzah.
How incredibly brag-worthy. If it wasn't for posts of this nature (Teehee-submitted-a-white-belt-LOL-PWNED!!) I'm sure this board wouldn't be the repository of knowledge that it is
Not to detract from the thread or anything, but damn, it's pretty difficult to visualize just about any of this without pictures, too many variables I guess.
Then again, I can only apply one submission with a fair measure of skill: the kimura, yet still I can't picture most of this.
