Using this Limp Arm Counter just might get you Double Wrist Locked

Yes you heard me right, using this Limp Arm Counter to Wrestling’s Whizzer just might get you Double Wrist Locked/caught in a Kimura. Why bother showing it then? Well because I still think it’s a very valid and useful technique.

If you’ve ever clinched or as I mentioned in the video, worked your way up to your knees from bottom Half Guard, chances are, you’ve encountered the Whizzer. This little beauty gives you an option for dealing with it. “But what if you get Double Wrist Locked?” you ask. Well, just knowing that that is a possibility is going to keep you out of much of the danger, and should you still fall prey to the Double Wrist Lock/Kimura, well, you need look no further than last week’s post (Catch Wrestling Kimura Killer Recounter) to give you some options for getting out of that mess.

For those of you who never saw the throw that got Mr. Schultz disqualified, you might want to check out the video below:

And for those of you who want a little bit more detail on how to use the Kimura Throw, or Double Wrist Lock Takedown, fear not, we covered that years ago with Coach Billy Robinson and Jake Shannon.

  1. Wow. Awesome skill to catch the arm while limp arming out.

    I use a Kimura roll almost the same as Jake Shannon and Billy Robinson do it but instead of putting my feet between the legs I lean my body as horizontal as possible with the head going to the same side as the Kimura arm.
    With my opposite leg I post it across my opponents hips with my foot at one side of his hip and my shin running along the hip line and my knee at the opposite side. I then fall backwards and as I fall I kick the leg up and it helps to throw the opponent over really well. Their momentum should carry you over into side control with a Kimura. I like to hook my leg behind their head before I pull on the move.
    I’ll try to post a video of me doing it so you can see exactly what I mean.
    It’s one of my favourite techniques. :)

    @Naturalbornfighter1, I would absolutely love to see it. It’s always nice to see a new twist on a old standard.

  5. Hopefully I’ll be able to film it for you tomorrow night and then I’ll get it posted up ASAP 😀

  6. Im sorry I haven’t been able to get the technique filmed. Hopefully Monday night I’ll be able to get it filmed. I haven’t had a training partner to use in the past few days.

  7. Dr Sick says:

    No worries naturalbornfighter1. If we get to see it that would rock. If not, we’ll manage to get by, somehow. :)

  8. Haha, FINALLY!!! I hope you can see it in this one. As your hip touches the ground you kick the leg that’s across your opponents hip to lift him over. Enjoy!

  9. It’s the least I could do for you guys 😀

    Aw wow, thats an exeptional idea Dr.Sick. I’ve done that Kimura roll with a lot of success for years but I never thought of combining it with the Thai aspect before. I need to think more MMA rather than Thai and Grappling. I love how I believe im teaching you something for the first time and then you boomerang this GOLD right back to me heehee!

    Thank you!
