Hi, and since this is the ADVANCED TECHNIQUE FORUM, here is something appropriate:
I've been messed with different things to do with the Kimura grip and also looking for a way to stop getting mauled by a friend of mine who is an excellent wrestler with a strong top game. So last week as he blasted through my half guard I managed to secure a kimura grip on him. I've done this before and he's shut me down. But this time I had a new trick:
YouTube- Kimura to Armbar from Bottom of Side Control
So I tried the basic Kimura sweep, that failed when he moved around to N/S, so I went with it, popped my hips out, got to my knees and was able to transition to an armbar and finish. It all kind of just happened friday. Well Sunday I went in thinking "I want to hit that again somehow" and I did. So I decided to make a quick reference video for it.
It's not a how-to video and I'm doing a bunch of stuff wrong, it's just a reference for the gross technique movement.
Congrats. Study EVERY Ude Garami ("Kimura" version) done by Sakuraba in NHB and MMA.
Hi. Welcome to the grappling forum. I'm looking forward to any insight you might lend us.

Ehh I don't know about that move. I've had plenty of success with the kimura sweep, perhaps re-examine your sweep. Also the way the guy is passing in the video you should be able to just escape your hips out by pushing on his head the direction he is attempting to move his hips around. He's got no control of your upper spine (head/shoulder) to stop you from shrimping.
Retnuheht: Welcome to the forums, maybe if we get enough new people we'll actually turn this section into an active area of the site again.
The way he's passing there is just so I could get a better camera angle on my arms.
And the basic kimura sweep works great for me on most anyone my size, but the guys I'm getting smashed by are about 45lbs heavier.
They are strong enough to keep their arm tucked into their body and protected while they smash me down.
Obviously I wouldn't skip straight to this without trying the basic kimura sweep first.
If they are keeping their arm tucked into their body they can't post if you roll them. Around :17-20 in your video why not try to suck the arm into your chest and bridge and reverse them into n/s position. Similar in principle to this video.

Thank you ALL. Remember...when ALL other things are equal...the advantage goes to the bigger and stronger person. This is WHY there are weight classes. Mike Tyson and Julio Cesar Chavez were in their prime at the EXACT time. You answer this question. WHO would win? WHY? WHY did it (a bout between Mike and Julio) NOT happen? Answer these...and you have your answer to the above.

STUDY Mario Sperry Versus Royler Gracie.
Judo and SAMBO suck.
