It is friendly for all ages, sizes, and experience levels. Whether you are a new white belt or a 3rd-degree black belt, you WILL learn powerful new details to take your technique to the next level.

What you will learn

Kimura Mastery

Whether you are a white belt or a black belt - YOU WILL LEARN SOMETHING NEW about the Kimura. David has had the honor of training with UFC World Champions, ADCC World Champions, and many BJJ Black belts that were stunned with how much they learned from this seminar.

Take Down Counters

Wrestlers can be the bane of a BJJ fighters existence. The Kimura Trap System has MANY counters to all forms of shots, back takes, and cage take downs. When you master KTS, you will find no one will want to shoot on you anymore for fear of the Kimura Trap. Add the Switch Series, which is a classic wrestling reversal that can be used in the same situations as Kimuras (especially when you can't make the grip), and the Front Headlock Series - you will have tons of powerful options to counter take downs.

Submission Hunters

The Kimura Trap System has one inevitable conclusion - submission. Whether it is a Kimura, arm bar, triangle choke, rear naked choke, leg lock, wrist lock, omo plata, or crucifix - you will find a way to get your opponent tapping out. The Back Trap System is another powerful finishing system against the turtle position, along with the Front Headlock Series, giving you many ways of finishing.

Transition skills

The Kimura Trap System is a controlled transition, where you know everything that will happen 3-5 steps ahead of your opponent. There are so many ways to start it, that it will give your transition game a whole new level. Likewise, the Back Trap System, Front Headlock Series, and the Switch Series follow simple progressions that you can count on.

Game planning

When starting out with the martial arts, it can be hard to know what strategy to execute, or even how to develop such a strategy. David's technique series are fully fleshed out game plans that require no thinking - just follow the steps to the finish.

All ages, genders, and body types

The great thing about the systems being taught is that it is not tailor-made for one specific body type. They can work for you whether you are long and tall, short and stocky, flexible or stiff, young or experienced.

This retreat is suitable for all ages. However, minors would have to be accompanied an adult.
