    Do you prefer a c-grip or a monkey grip( thumb on top) grip?

      For the hand that is grabbing the wrist I always use a c-grip because it allows me to control their wrists and more directions, for the hand that grabs my wrist I use a monkey grip because it is a stronger grip if I’m only dealing with force in one direction.

    Hi Henry, Much respect. Just a quick question regarding your strategy,when would you choose to adopt this kimura counter strategy over the leg straightening, turning and “ping pong strategy”?

    • Henry A December 23, 2016 at 8:58 am

      Hey Cameron, It all comes down to personal preference, for me, sometimes if it’s a much larger opponent I prefer to tire them out letting them try to pass and look for an opportunity to sweep to come on top and finish from there. Also depends on circumstances, if it’s a fight, tournament, how much time is left, how fresh they are ect…

    Do you see any issues with transitioning to a guillotine if the kimura fails? Based on what you showed in Mind Blown club, It seems you’re already in a similar set up when you plant your foot and move your hips back to create space for the attack.

    I would love to get your input on your thought process when linking techniques together.

      Great question, Michael M.

      Yes that’s a great transition, usually when they defend the Kimura they lean onto the arm to put weight on it which brings their head right next to your armpit and makes it ready to wrap for the guillotine
