Ep. 53 - Single Leg Defense - Kimura Throw-By

No Gi - All, No Gi - Jiu Jitsu, No Gi - Single Leg Defense

Using the kimura trap to defend the single leg takedown is very common in Jiu Jitsu, but sometimes your opponent's hands will separate, their arm will straighten, and you lose the leverage on the kimura. Michael demonstrates how he uses this to his advantage to take his opponent's back either from the feet or the mat. Lastly, strategy wise, Michael gives a specific example on when the kimura throw-by might be a better option then the kimura trap.
