Sakuraba first rose to international acclaim as the mysterious grappler with no jiu-jitsu background who was still able to win and even submit some of the most famous Jiu Jitsu fighters and wrestlers in the UFC and Pride.
The whole BJJ world was stunned that someone without a background in the gentle art was attacking Kimuras and joint locks like a pro black belt, but he was doing it so differently that the regular defenses weren’t working! To this day, people have been trying to figure out exactly what made Sakuraba so special and now you can see those same techniques that he made work against some of the best!
Every volume of this series has moves that are battle-tested and ready for live action, so you can always have a few tricks up your sleeve when you need them.
In no-gi grappling, one of the hardest things to do can be getting control long enough to get the submission. In this series, Sakuraba is able to solve all of this with some really innovative tricks using leverage and with pressure points, so he is always creating reactions in his opponent, reactions that he can use to get the tap.
He is a true master of the kimura, and the entries, combinations, and finishes he shows will blow your mind in how effective, simple, and different they are than what anyone else is doing. By combining the kimura with the exact right places to pressure in, along with some of the sneakiest armbars and wrist locks we’ve ever seen, this might be the most diverse kimura game on the planet, and now it can be all yours!
