Kimura from Sit Up Guard

If you step toward your opponent and throw a single punch, the chances are he will either block it or step out of the way. But when you unleash with a savage combination, your opponent will have a much harder time evading all of your strikes. The same concept applies on the ground. In this scenario, I attempt a basic hip sweep, my opponent counters by posting his arm, and I immediately use his defensive movement against him by abandoning the sweep and transitioning into a Kimura.

I've achieved the sit up guard position by sitting up, posting on my right hand, and driving the sharp part of my left wrist into Troy's neck.

Troy posts his left hand on the mat, countering the sweep. I Immediately hook my left arm over his left arm to apply the Kimura.

Unhooking my feet, I post my left leg on the ground and elevate my hips. As I jam my left hip up into Troy's right armpit, I turn my body in a clockwise direction.

Troy posts his left hand on the mat, countering the sweep. I Immediately hook my left arm over his left arm to apply the Kimura.

I drop down to my right elbow and latch onto Troy's left wrist with my right hand.

Reaching my left arm underneath Troy's left arm, I grab the top of my right wrist with my left hand. As I do this, I turn my hips in a counterclockwise direction and roll to my back. It is important to notice that as I come down onto my back, I scoot my hips to my right side. This gives me the angle that I need to really crank down on the Kimura.

I drop down to my right elbow and latch onto Troy's left wrist with my right hand.

Rolling over onto my left shoulder, I throw my right leg over Troy's back to keep his posture broken and rotate my body so it is perpendicular to his. To finish the Kimura, I pull my left arm into my body while driving my right arm in the direction of Troy's head. This puts a tremendous amount of pressure on his left shoulder.

Devoted as I am to popularizing amateur boxing and to improving the caliber of this particularly desirable competitive sport, I am highly enthusiastic over John Walsh's boxing instruction book. No one in the United States today can equal John's record as an amateur boxer and a coach. He is highly regarded as a sportsman. Before turning to coaching and the practice of law John was one of the most successful college and Golden Gloves boxers the sport has ever known.
