Here is a useful video from our archives where Rafa Mendes shows how to use an inverse kimura grip from the closed guard. I personally love closed guard techniques and this grip really added a whole new dimension to my arsenal after they showed it to me. I especially found the arm-drag to be efficient from here since your opponent becomes too preoccupied with the submissions.
This video was filmed in Pura Jiu-Jitsu, the first Mendes Brothers affiliate top open in Hamilton, Canada.
