The Kimura is one of the oldest and most effective submissions, and it reaches across tons of different grappling styles. Once it’s locked up, it’s either game over with the submission, or you use it to get a really dominant position to finish the fight anyway. It can come on from a ton of different positions, and you can use it against much more experienced fighters with good success. Every year, kimuras are being thrown on at every level, up to world championship black belt fights. Still, so many aren’t taking full advantage of how strong a position this can be, and how many different attacks you can chain to, until you get the tap.
This 4-volume set is an encyclopedia of double wrist locks (the Catch Wrestling name for the Kimura), with knowledgeable instruction on how to make any position a fight ender, just so long as you can lock your wrists. With advice given to him by such greats as Billy Robinson, Gene Lebell and Gokor Chivichian, Neil talks his way through how you can approach each position with a finishers mindset, and points out the few key details that most grapplers are going to miss.
