WARNING: Broken Arm

Ethan Crelinsten applies a submission, opponent does not tap, arm is broken and Crelinsten qualifies for the ADCC in Finland.

The kimura submission happened during Crelinsten’s second match in the ADCC West Coast Trials over the weekend.

Masahiko Kimura was a Japanese judoka and professional wrestler who is widely considered one of the greatest judoka of all time. In submission grappling, the reverse ude-garami arm lock is often called the “Kimura”, due to his famous victory over Gracie jiu-jitsu founder Hélio Gracie. Masahiko died in 1993 at age 75.
