Kimura Class | Kimura Sweep from half guard | Long Island Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
As many of you guys know it has been Kimura month durring all Long Island MMA Jiu Jitsu Classes, Both No-Gi and Gi. The only exception is the Leg lock classes but all Long Island MMA’s grappling classes have been kimura themed. In the video below coach Brent teaches the Wednesday 7pm Nogi class how to do a sweep using the kimura from the half guard position.
We are looking forward to seeing you down here tomorrow for a follow up to this technique!
iu Jitsu Technique:
Kimura Sweep from half guard
Brent was going over how to do a back take off of a Kimura sweep from half guard in this video. The video was shot during one of our No-gi BJJ classes during Kimura month.
Brent teaches every Wednesday at 7pm at Long Island MMA in Farmingdale!
PS! please excuses the fans in the background it was hot that day!
Who’s excited for kimura month at Long Island MMA? I know I am! Ever since Long Island Mixed Martial Arts announced kimura traps for the month of April, I’ve been exctited to take the drive down to the farmingdale location and train my kimuras! Depo . For those unfamiliar with kimura, it’s essentially a figure four with your arms trapping your opponents arm in between. The submission focuses on locking up the shoulder and extending the elbow while the wrist are locked up and your arm is rotated behind your back. If that doesn’t make sense, trust me it sucks to be trapped in the kimura. If you genuinely aren’t familiar with the kimura and its various traps or set up make it a priority to attend during the month for both gi and no-gi. Personally, I hardly use it in my game (not sure if I even have a game), not because I am against it but really because I just never really practiced it. However, I did train with a fellow Long Island MMA member who’s favorite move was the kimura, He is a suffolk police officer so it makes sense he would like to move because it is kind of like cuffing a bad guy. We used to drill different traps over and over during the week. Basically what I learned while training with him was that the submission was nearly available from anywhere. He was able to force it at times and in other times bait me into being set up. Depo has been demonstrating so far a few lures to trap your opponent. My favorite so far is the details he has been laying in his foundation to his upcoming kimura month. I believe the small intricacies he’s explained is the difference between finishing the submission and ultimately not. So you don’t have to twist my arm (see what I did there), I’ll be there during kimura month!! -Pat Rivera
Every gym has there particular etiquettes. Etiquette here meaning different rules or unique practices and or beliefs. Some gyms require you to sit down in silence while the instructor is explaining the technique. Some people have their own beliefs that they ritually practice. It’s entirely the norm in some gyms or perhaps mainly “dojo’s” to bow before you step onto the mats. Even at our own gym where such actions are not mandated, I have witnessed our fellow members do so before stepping on to the mat. It’s totally respectful and tradition from some where that I am not knowledgeable on. In one particular gym I believe they only allow you to train in a white gi as to not blemish the color of the mats with your gi color. Aside from the gym specific practices there are totally hygienic procedures that everyone should take part in whether or not the gym strictly enforces it. We should all be kind to our training partners. Nobody wants to train with the guy who hasn’t washed his gi in a month, believe me! At Long Island MMA they measures to keep the facility germ free. Regardless, of how immaculate the gym is the odds of you contract any ring worm lets say isn’t going to come because of the mats or because you licked the light switches ( don’t lick light switches people). You most likely got what ever from some one. LIMMA takes its precautions regardless. They spray the mats with special disinfectants. We can train all night and day on it. However, it’s up to you to have proper etiquette when walking on and off the mats. We are all quite used to walking around barefoot. Where you walk barefoot others walk with sneakers on. It’s proper practice to wear the appropriate foot wear when walking off the mats to avoid cross contaminating what’s on the heavily circulated floors on to the mats.
Long Island MMA always tries to host some type of training on holidays. On Easter Sunday 4/16/17 at 9am Long Island MMA will host a No-gi grappling class for all those interested!
We hope you guys can come down and train with us and continue the tradition of training on a holiday.
Congratulations to Long Island MMA fighters Sarah Thomas and Christian Dottin. Both fighters competed and won on Sunday 4/9/17 at a local K1 rules match in Wantagh NY! Congratulations to both Long Island MMA fighters we know both of them will be back in the gym and training right away!
