Kesa-Gatame

A side-control position where one arm goes around the opponent’s neck, the other arm secures the opponent’s arm, while driving weight down onto the opponent’s chest and with one leg flat on the ground and the other perpendicular to the mats, both at a 90° bend.

“Kesa-Gatame…It’s like a Quesadilla, just filled with Gatame!”

– Rollo May
