Technique of the Week

Chris Civello of Sakura BJJ in Dover, New Jersey provides this week’s MyMMANews.com ‘Technique of the Week.’ Civello, a brown belt under Marcelo Garcia demonstrates a very popular submission technique.

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.
