Reverse Kimura: Closed Guard

4.88(8 Ratings)


The Myth Vs. The Truth

They say closed guard is one of the most dominant positions in jiu jitsu. What they don’t say is that you actually need to have a specific system you’re constantly hunting for, if you want a dangerous closed guard. If every time you get to closed guard, you’ve no idea what to grab first and can’t remember which way your coach told you to move your hips, then Drew Weatherhead’s reverse kimura system might just be the ace of spades that will make your opponents want to avoid your closed guard like we all wanted to avoid 2020.

Get A Better Grip.

Sleeve grips and collar grips are usually what people are taught to look for while playing closed guard, which means the person on top will be most worried about their sleeves and their collars being grabbed. Good! This is where the reverse kimura grip comes in as the surprise attack your opponent didn’t see coming.

No Such Thing As Too Close Or Too Far Here.

Inside this course, Drew breaks down his reverse kimura system into 3 separate distance ranges. The close range, middle range, and long range. Whether your opponent pressures you, backs away or tries to play it safe in the middle, you will know exactly what to do to advance your position.

Submissions, Sweeps, And Transitions To Powerful Positions

The reverse kimura might sound like just another fancy submission, but don’t let the name fool you, this is not just another finisher, it’s a full guide to dominating your opponent from closed guard. Once you slap on the reverse kimura grip, a whole world of unusual, nasty submissions, sweeps, and transitions to powerful positions will open up.

I have struggled with closed guard from day one. I always felt like I was trying to muscle things that weren't there for a low-percentage attack. Not anymore. Thank you, Drew!
