Grab a beer or adult beverage of your choice, some salty snacks and settle your self down for 20 minutes of double wrist lock action. If you're clueless to the term "double wristlock," it's okay, that's what we are here for. The double wrist lock is a catch wrestling term for the figure four grip that is most often used in a kimura or chicken wing. Now if you want to improve your kimura or learn how to get out of one, you should watch this grainy, poorly lit video from Warriors Path Combat Academy. Despite the instructor reading off of his legal pad and the poor video quality, I give this tutorial two thumbs up (and yes, I used both thumbs in applying my kimura and it worked just fine, despite popular Brazilian belief.)

  1. Thumbs up for using your thumbs on the kimura. I'm just a blue belt, but I have put a lot of thought into this and I've come to hypothesize that common BJJ practice is wrong on this. It's especially true for the hand that's gripping your opponent's wrist, which is pushing away from you. I'm seriously considering making a real biomechanical study of this to prove it.
