The Chicken Wing lock from Side Control
Catch wrestling is the nearly lost art of hooking. Hooking means to catch a submission hold. It was used mainly in carnival shows in the early 1900's. This is Catch Wrestling's variation of the Kimura lock. Once again it has its slight differences.
Bring to the Head
Pull and Lock
From Side Control, start by getting in a position to do a Kimura.
Twist the wrist so that the pinkie is in the air and the thumb is on the ground.
Once the twist is secure, start to bring his hand in a semicircle towards his head. If you can grab your own wrist from here then do so. If not you are still applying pressure by the twist of the wrist. This also makes his elbow point in the air. This makes the lock easier.
To try to escape or relieve pressure, your opponent might bring his head off the mat.
If this happens, step over his head and bring your foot as tight to your body as possible.
With the head secure and the elbow straight in the air, bring his hand straight into his back. This should make him turn into you. Then reach under his arm and grab your wrist to secure the lock.
To finish the lock, bring his hand toward his head and rotate your upper body.
