Kimura lock (Ude garami) video
Info about "Kimura lock (Ude garami) video"
Kimura (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu), chicken wing/double wristlock (wrestling), or reverse keylock are terms used to specify a medial keylock known in judo as gyaku ude-garami (reverse arm entanglement) or simply as ude-garami. It needs some space behind the opponent to be effective, and can be applied from the side control or guard. The opponent’s wrist is grabbed with the hand on the same side, and the opposite arm is put on the back side the opponent’s arm, and again grabbing the attacker’s wrist and forming a figure-four.
By controlling the opponent’s body and cranking the arm away from the attacker, pressure is put on the shoulder joint, and depending on the angle, also the elbow joint (in some variations the opponent’s arm is brought behind their back, resulting in a finishing position resembling that of the hammerlock outlined below). The kimura was named after the judoka Masahiko Kimura, who used it to defeat one of the founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Hélio Gracie.
