Lots of rolling with Heidi this morning, as is typical for the morning open mat. I was continuing to try and get that kimura hug from side control. It appears I'm getting better at isolating the shoulder, at least with partners who are smaller and/or less experienced than me. I think the key to that is getting your weight right onto the shoulder, so they can't lift it to relieve the pressure. I will keep playing with it, seems like a great follow up to a standard kimura attempting, or indeed the usual americana, if you can get their hand to go the other way. I would assume this wouldn't work well in an americana configuration, but then you'd just go for the americana as they can't grab things as easily to block that. :)
