MMA technique of the week (1)

This weeks technique will be defending the reverse bear-hug via the standing kimura lock.

A fight can turn sour quickly for any fighter who is being controlled from behind. One of the most difficult holds to escape from is a wrestling technique called the bear hug. From this position, a strong grappler who applies the hold can completely control the other fighter. He can suplex him, trip him or even hop on his back and go for a choke. Long story short, a fighter does not want to expose his back.
