My name is David Avellan. I am a 4xADCC (Abu Dhabi Combat Club) Submission Wrestling World Championships Veteran, having won a Bronze medal in the 87.9kg division in 2009.
I have beaten many of the world’s best grapplers, such as BJJ Black Belt World Champions Rafael Lovato Jr., Tarsis Humphries, Amaury Bitteti, Alexandre ‘Xande’ Ribeiro, Roberto ‘Cyborg’ Abreu, and Rener Gracie.
“Wait a second! Aren’t you a wrestler?”
Yes and no, LOL!
When my brother Marcos and I burst into national attention in 2003, we were labeled wrestlers. You see, back then, wrestling wasn’t common in grappling. A decent high school wrestler with BJJ training would give people fits.
That is what I was. I had 3 years of HS wrestling when I started to train NHB (No Holds Barred) in 1999. For your newbies, NHB was the hardcore, no rules form of MMA. MMA evolved from NHB and became the sport that it is today.
Anyhow, my brother (Marcos Avellan) and I achieved quick success in the grappling world once we applied our wrestling work ethic and take downs to our Jiu Jitsu game.
We only had an instructor for about a year and a half. After he moved, we became Ronins (a Samurai with no master).
We trained each other and constantly worked to improve our skills. We studied videos, magazines, UFCs, and competed as much as possible.
Since we had no easy hand me down source of knowledge, we learned to always keep our eyes and minds open to new techniques.
Back to the matter at hand – why I hate wrestling.
This may come as a surprise to a BJJer, but wrestling is the most stressful part of a match for me – even for someone who is labeled a wrestler.
I’m not the only one. In fact, I would say that 99% of wrestlers share the same anxiety.
Because if you face an opponent who is a better wrestler, you will not be able to control the first points scored. Sure we could pull guard, but wrestlers are not used to being on their back.
The lack of practice makes wrestlers vulnerable like an upside down turtle when on their backs.
Personally, I have lost matches just because I gave up one take down. Losing 2-0 is incredibly frustrating. Especially when you are doing everything possible to score but your opponent is just stalling.
Many competitors play the “points game.” I admit – I have done it myself.
No one enjoys watching someone ride out the score. It bores the hell out of the crowd and makes no fans.
But that is not why I became a submission artist. I could care less about what other people think as long as I get what I want.
The reason I changed was EFFICIENCY.
In the ADCC 2007 Submission Wrestling World Championships, I had a total mat time of over 70 minutes with just 4 matches. Playing the ‘safe’ route caused me to go deep into regulation and many overtimes.
A total of 6 overtimes!
I fell short of what I wanted, which was two gold medals. Then I watched what the winners were doing: Marcelo Garcia, Robert Drysdale, Braulio Estima and Roger Gracie.
They spent less time on the mat because they were finishing their matches quick. That left them better rested to go the long haul and in tournaments, you need all the energy you can get.
I decided then that I needed to take more chances and up my submission game.
Being an engineer, I wanted to find the best submission hold possible to maximize my gains and minimize my risk.
I knew that I needed a specialty. A jack of all trades is a master of none. Marcelo Garcia has the arm drag, Cyborg the tornado guard, Braulio his inverted triangle. What was going to be mine?
I was already well known for my leg locks, but I wanted to specialize in another hold. Factors I considered were:
As I thought about this more and more, I struggled to wrap my head around it all. I made flow charts and diagrams to try and pick the most efficient move.
The result of all this brainstorming was a technique I had learned in my first day of grappling training…
The Kimura Trap is a submission system that I have been developing for over five years.
I have drilled countless hours, mapped tons of different sequences, and practiced hundreds of scenarios – all in the quest for a submission that I can hit against anyone at any time, from any position.
But rather me trying to describe to you what it is, watch this video of me and my students using it in competition.
As you can see, there is a TON of positions, submissions, sweeps, takedowns and escapes in the Kimura Trap system. Here are just a few things the Kimura Trap can do for you:
If the Kimura Trap system was just about takedown defense, it would be a great weapon in your arsenal. But the good news gets better:
I can grapple someone ONLY using the Kimura Trap System and be a stone cold killer.
Using the system is easy and there are tons of opportunities in every match. You don’t have to wait for the stars to line up to get your chance.
This is what makes this system so powerful – you can use it all the time.
If you are paying attention, I have said system dozens of times. What do I mean exactly when I say the Kimura Trap is a system?
This is the beauty of the Kimura Trap – it is so easy to replicate in new students. I have blue belts that are beating brown belts just because they can follow the system.
And yes, you can submit your instructor! I taught a Kimura Trap seminar at a close friend’s school while he was away, and now he is complaining that he keeps getting caught with it by his students!
You don’t have to take my word for it. I held a few seminars and got to show people outside of my academy what the Kimura Trap System was all about.
Just listen to their Kimura Trap reviews:
“I just finished the seminar with Master Avellan – Incredible! I have been to numerous seminars in the past 7-8 years with Master Chim. I have been to seminars with Marcello Garcia, Jeff Glover, a bunch of them. Not to say they are no good, but this is hands down, the best seminar I have ever been to.”
“I just got done with David Avellan’s seminar, The Kimura Trap. Amazing seminar! Basically, a game changer. If you are having trouble finishing the kimura, trouble setting up the kimura, or having trouble defending takedowns, this is the system that will improve your game and have you catching kimuras from all different angles, have you defending takedowns, taking people’s back and finishing with a one arm choke. Overall the system is amazing. I definitely suggest you check out the system.”
“I just had the Kimura Trap seminar and had my mind blown! I have been training Jiu Jitsu for a few years now and I learned all new techniques that I have never seen before. I can’t wait to go back to class and start busting them out and getting guys to tap. All my training buddies that work with me are going to be upset they weren’t here because I’m going to abuse them for the next few years.”
“Just finished up the Kimura Trap seminar with Dave Avellan – awesome, awesome stuff! I’m going to immediately implement this to my game. I already got my notes here and I’m ready to go.”
“I just finished the David Avellan seminar – awesome seminar! The Kimura Trap is the new evolution of Jiu Jitsu. It is awesome and I can’t wait to start using it in competition…Jiu Jitsu is always changing – this is definitely the next step. Anybody who is not doing this is going to be back a whole notch so I highly recommend David Avellan’s Kimura Trap. Check it out!”
“This is actually one of my first seminars. The reason I took David Avellan’s seminar is that it looks like it actually works. It is nothing fancy, it is all built off a solid move – the Kimura. A move that anyone can learn and take to the next level.”
You might be thinking, “It is easy to amaze a student with technique.”
But it is not just students that love the Kimura Trap System. Take a look at what ADCC veteran, undefeated MMA fighter, BJJ Black Belt, and in-your-face personality Justin “Chim” Garcia had to say in his Kimura Trap review:
“…The beauty is in the system that Master David designed and within one seminar, I believe the seminar was 2-3 hours long, I have at least 20, 25, maybe even 30 students following this system. I have guys pulling off Kimuras in tournaments, guys pulling them off in training, guys getting a lot of confidence in areas they didn’t otherwise have. You guys know David Avellan – he is one of the world’s best and his Kimura Trap series is in line with the caliber that we are used to…He is an awesome instructor, very articulate and very passionate about what he teaches and his Kimura Trap series is no different.”
Justin is not the only Black Belt to be impressed with the results of the Kimura Trap, hear what the head coach Brad Daddis of Daddis Fight camps had to say in his Kimura Trap System review:
“We were fortunate enough to have David Avellan do a seminar and just give us a little brief sample of the Kimura Trap. One of the coolest parts about the Kimura Trap is that its a system. As a BJJ black belt, sometimes we think we know everything, but we don’t. David is an innovator. He put together a system that after showing my students, even white belts, for one day with the Kimura Trap and they are hitting it in local tournaments. And guys simply don’t know how to defend against it.It has never been seen before. There is a counter to everything. Everything David has on there, if somebody tries to counter what you are doing, there is a counter to the counter.”
Perhaps you want to hear from battle tested competitors who have competed at a world class level.
I have had the privelege of being invited multiple times to Team Lloyd Irvin specifically to train the “Medal Chasers,” a group of dedicated warriors who eat, sleep, and live BJJ. Between them all, they have over a couple dozen world championships – so you know they are the creme of the crop.
After 12 hours of instruction, I interviewed them to answer some of the common questions people have about the Kimura Trap System. Listen below to what these world champions had to say in their Kimura Trap System reviews:
What you will be getting in The Kimura Trap System is a 6-DVD instructional course jam packed with techniques such as:
Once you see how many ways you can use the Kimura Trap, you might get lost.
That is way I added the Kimura Trap Mind Map!
The Kimura Trap Mind Map clearly shows what techniques you can use from each position, and how they transition into other techniques.
If you plan on being a Kimura Trap Master (which you will), this will be very helpful resource.
It was by using this very same mind map that I achieved a higher level of understanding with the Kimura Trap System.
In the 5 years of studying and experimenting it took to master the Kimura Trap System, I spent at least 1000 hours (and that is being conservative).
If you told me that I could save myself 5 years of work by investing $197 to have the whole system documented and explained to me with both video and complete with a mind map – I would have jumped on the opportunity in a heartbeat.
Heck, it took over a year of work just to organize all my systems and make sure that everything was thoroughly explained. Now I turn over my years of experience and knowledge over to you so that you may learn quickly what took me much effort.
So if you are like me and are tired of the “points game”, forget the score board and join me in a new game – the Submission Game.
The Kimura Trap System is the most powerful system in my submission game, and I promise you that it will become one of yours.
If you answered yes to any of these statements, you owe it to yourself to get the Kimura Trap System.
As someone who has played both, the submission game is much funner, and far more rewarding.
Believe and Achieve,
I don’t blame you. We all have invested money one time or another and got burned.
My brother Marcos is a quick to make decisions. You just tell him what he will get and he does it.
Me, I’m more analytical. I have to analyze the whole product and offer before I make a decision.
What I have found is that waiting too long before making a decision actually hurts you more.
If you have gotten this far, then you are probably like me and asking yourself:
“Should I get this now, or wait for more info?”
That is what we really want don’t we? More information. We get what is called “the paralysis of analysis.”
We are analyzing so much we forget about making a decision. If someone would just hand me the product so that I can see it and use it, it would make my decision so much easier.
While I can’t just give the Full Kimura Trap System away for free, I will give you a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. Here is it how it works:
With this 30-Day Money Back Guarantee, I have taken away the risk and placed it solely on my shoulders.
At this point, the only question left to answer is:
“Do I want to learn how to stop any takedown using jiu jitsu and be able to finish all my opponents?”
If you answered YES, click below and start learning the Kimura Trap System.
If you answered NO, then close this page and retire from BJJ.
If you didn’t answer, then start reading from the top until you can make a decision.
