Coffee Break BJJ -Side Control Kimura with Teco Shinzato

The video today is short at under 2 minutes, but superb!

OK I am no where near a black belt, but I find side control is one of the most dominant positions in BJJ.

It’s one of the worst positions to be in when I am on the bottom. While side control is often viewed as a temporary point between other dominant positions I find more experienced players of side control use it as the base point for match winning submissions and transitions.

This week we will look at ways of developing a brutal and gnarly Brazilian Jiu Jitsu side control game with submissions. I think we are on safe ground to say that the general consensus is that three submissions come to mind initially Kimura / American / Straight Armbar.

I’ll begin with the Kimura. This video from Evolve University is one that I looked at and fell in love with. I am not fast, not strong, not heavy and not agile, hence you see why this suits me and probably any game.

Short but packed with detail
