This is by far, my number 1 submission. I cant express how well this move works and I highly recommend repping it out before trying it during rolling.
Here I show it as a transition from Kesa whereas normally I hit it from the forearm wedge. The setup can vary, but the submission is extremely high percentage.
Keep in mind you must be careful when pushing on that fist. The only problem with this move is sometimes my opponent's will clasp their hands together because they fear the Kimura. This leads to my opponent thinking they are safe when in fact I'm actually attacking the other arm.
This leads me to have to make a choice. Do I push hard enough to break the grip and maybe blow up their shoulder or do I come back up on top and actually attack the Kimura? In competition I want the shoulder, in class, I'll never hurt my training partners and always opt to come up on top.
Check it out, I love this move.

In this video I show an alternate technique for when your opponent is not giving you the underhook in Half Guard. This is not a common technique and I would rate it as medium percentage. I've had watch video >>
