Alright, the submission that we want to talk about now is the Kimora. We've just talked about Kimora from side mount. Now we want to work on how you can set that up from the guard. There are a lot of really cool setups for it and now we are going over a couple of them from a few different angles.
The first one, just the basic Kimora is when my opponent is controlling my hips, see how his elbows are out, past my legs, he is controlling my hip movement, I can't really shrimp out. This does me an option though. There are a couple of ways to set it up, I like to give him a bump with my leg, just because I want that elbow up as far as I can get -- I will just give him a little bump right before I go for it. What I am going to do for the Kimora, I am going to open my guard and I am going to sit up and reach over. So I am going to try to lean away so you can see it. But I am going to reach up and over right here. Remember the monkey grip, no thumbs. I am going to grab on to his wrist, I am going to grab onto my wrist and I am going to sit back and throw my leg over, that's the key, you have got to throw your leg over his head, so he is going dive it. So I sit back and throw this leg up, now I want to take his hand and make a rainbow to the back of his head, when you get a tap, be real careful when you are trying this with your partners.
Okay, so again, my opponent is controlling my hips, I give him a little bump, I sit up and over. Notice how I am reaching over his tricep and hooking it with my arm. This is a really tight grip. I have locked on here, reach up and over, grab my own wrist. Now really hard I want to sit back and I want to throw in this shoulder flat on the ground and throw this leg over, this way. Now when I do this I push down as hard as I can, don't want any movement here. I take this into a rainbow motion all the way up from the back of his head.
From the other side so you can see what my legs are doing, when I am here, I give a bump, I sit up and over and sit back, okay. There is a lot of variations on what you could do, once you have this position locked in. Right now we are just going to go over the basic Kimora, we are going to go over few different setups later on.
But from a different angle, we are here, my opponent has my hips locked, I need to bump his arm, okay, and I sit up, I bump and I sit up and over, from here I sit back, I put my shoulder on the ground hook his hips, go straight from the back of his head, from the other side, we are here, I bump this, an arm up with my leg right here, I sit up and over. So we are here, bump, sit up. Notice my hand, I went up and around, up and around. Now I sit back and put my high shoulder on the ground, throw my leg over and finish with the tap.
That's your basic Kimora from guard, again there is a lot of setups that we are going to use to go after that or some more sweeps. We got some change theories and we are going to go over a little bit, but right now that's your basic Kimora from the guard, be careful working with your partner so as to have fun with it.
