BJJ world champion Mackenzie Dern defeated Tecia Torres at 273. During the fight, she impressed everyone with an incredible demonstration of high level Jiu-Jitsu. At one point, from the clinch, she jumped to closed guard and set up a hanging kimura which ransitioned to the ground. Mackenzie put her leg over Torres’ head adding more leverage on the lock.
The kimura trap is one of the most effective systems in BJJ. Some practitioners such as David Avellan base their whole game around them. Used as a kimura lock setup, the kimura trap can be used from almost anywhere on the mat both on the ground and standing. The trick is to know why, when and how to use it.
