21/08/2017 - BJJ Globetrotter Camp | Heidelberg 2017 | Half Guard Kimura Pass (David George)

Class #877
BJJ Globetrotter Camp (Olympiastützpunkt Rhein-Neckar) David George, Heidelberg, Germany, 21/08/2017

The first session in Heidelberg was on passing half guard using a kimura. David began with several tips on maintaining top half guard, such as the importance of sitting on their leg, so they can't lockdown. Swim in for an underhook, grab their other shoulder and pull it in. You can then walk your feet over to put them flat. Cross face and gather up their far arm, switching your cross face arm over.

Transfer grip, still controlling with first arm. Move into kimura, switch hips. Maintaining pressure, raise up enough to get your shin into their leg, acting as a wedge so their leg doesn't follow when you pull it towards you. This enables you to then free your leg. If you can't get a kimura because their wrist is too high (as then when you reach, it would tilt you backwards), whip your leg behind for base. You may need to do what David calls a 'poop flick' to free it. In other words, pull their leg back to full extension, then flick to whip your leg out.
