Professor Joe demonstrates The Kimura Trap

There are seemingly limitless ways to use your opponent’s gi against them in jiu-jitsu. From choking them out with their own collar to pulling them down into guard by their sleeves, jiu-jitsu turns your opponent’s own uniform into a powerful weapon against them.
