Frequently Asked Questions
The Kimura Trap System has over 60 techniques covered. We can categorize them into 6 modules:
Module 1: Kimura Fundamentals
Before you can learn the Kimura Trap, you need to fully understand the Kimura. This part blows people's minds, from white belt to black belt. I can't tell you how many black belts and top fighters were completely clueless on the important details that make the Kimura such a powerful submission hold.
People often think that basic moves are easy and don't require much study - that couldn't be further from the truth! Basic moves are so powerful, that even just a low level understanding allows it be effective. When you have the high level understanding you gain from this module, your Kimura will be a devastating weapon.
Module 2: Introduction to the Kimura Trap
Once you understand the Kimura, you can then learn the concept of the Kimura Trap - using the Kimura as a grip rather than just a submission. This revelation opens up all sorts of possibilities: sweeps, take downs, reversals, guard passes, and submissions. It also cover a unique position called the "TV" Position, which will become one of the best positions to trap your opponent.
Module 3: Advanced Finishes from the TV Position
After mastering the TV position and the basic submission attacks, we will go deeper into this position, with all sorts of submission and transition options.
Module 4: The Kimura Lockdown
The Kimura Lockdown is another unique position that utilizes the Kimura Trap concept. Most commonly used from bottom half guard, it allows you to lockdown your opponent and give you a slew of attacks, from sweeps to submissions.
Module 5: Kimuras from Behind and Escape Prevention
Even when your opponent is behind you the Kimura Trap is still in play. Whether you are standing, on your knees, or even in a complete back mount with hooks in, you can still finish the Kimura Trap! Plus, we plug any holes that your opponent might try to escape the Kimura Trap from, so that once somebody gets caught in the Kimura Trap, there is only one escape – to tap out!
Module 6: Online Updates
The first 5 modules were part of the release of the Kimura Trap System. But over the years, many new techniques were discovered, along with improvements to existing techniques. Rather than make a new product, I just updated the system for free by adding over 7 hours of content!
Here are answers to some more frequently asked questions:
I'm a white belt. Will this course help me?
I have taught seminars all across the world, having personally taught 1000+ students the Kimura Trap System. These are all people I had never met before, all ages, sizes, genders, and skill levels.
Each student was able to follow along and learn the skills needed to master the Kimura. I regularly get emails and messages on social media afterwards from students sharing their success with the system. Sometimes even getting videos of them winning competitions.
Because I start off the course with the fundamentals, it makes it very approachable for beginners. I actually prefer that you know nothing starting. That way, I don't have to unteach bad habits learned from others.
What makes your Kimura Trap System different from other Kimura Courses?
I produced the first course to exclusively cover the Kimura Trap. I know this, because I was the one that created the term Kimura Trap. :)
That is not to say other's hadn't done it before. But no one had ever organized it into the in depth system that I had previously. What resulted was a revolution in the BJJ and even MMA world using the Kimura Trap.
I have only seen bits and pieces of other courses from social media, and while I'm sure there are great points and techniques taught by other great coaches, the little that I have seen has technical mistakes and misunderstandings of fundamental details behind the Kimura Trap System.
So if you were looking to get a full understanding of the Kimura Trap, getting my course is the no brainer. Afterwards, I'm sure you can pick up a few tips from other courses, but by then you will be able to spot the mistakes and know not to make them.
Is there a Kimura Trap System Book?
When the Kimura Trap System was first released, it came with a full color book. However, since the system was first sold out, it was never reprinted.
But I have good news! I am now offering an eBook along with the DVD set and the Mind Map. The eBook is over 100 pages long, clearly illustrated with pictures in color. It goes over everything the DVD set has to offer, so it makes a great training companion for when you get stuck at the gym. It can opened on all mobile devices such as an iPhone, iPad, or Android phone or tablet.
If you had previously ordered the Kimura Trap System and didn’t receive a book, I will make the eBook available to you for free.
What payment methods do you take? Can I use PayPal?
Yes we take PayPal and major credit cards such as Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express cards. If you cannot do either of these, contact me at David@DavidAvellan.com and we can make special arrangements for you.
How do I get the free updates?
Easy. Just login to the video portal on FFAcoach and all the updates are posted there. The latest updates are at the bottom of the video section.
How long does it take to ship?
Once your order is completed, it takes 1-2 days to process before shipping out. For US orders, shipping can take 3-5 business days. The average order usually gets delivered within 4 days after ordering. Your order will also have tracking, so you can monitor your packages progress.
For international orders, it can take from 10-25 business days. Unfortunately, there is no tracking available for international orders as I wanted to make shipping as affordable as possible. Rest assured that virtually every package I have shipped has made it to it’s destination. Out of thousands of orders, only a handful of them had shipping problems. If you have the misfortune if not receiving your package after waiting 25 business days, I will make sure you receive it at no additional cost to you.
What about black belts? Is there anything for me to learn?
As a black belt, you may get more from this course than a white belt!
Because you might know the bird's eye view of the Kimura and even the Kmura Trap, but I'm going to zoom in to a microscopic level of detail that pretty much no one else on the planet does. Without fail, every time I teach the seminar, within the first 10 minutes I am getting approached by instructors and veteran martial artists that are in awe of one little detail they had never seen before.
And those little details make a HUGE difference.
Can I watch the course through my phone?
Are online video portal, FFAcoach.com, is mobile optimized. You can watch through any internet ready device, be it on a computer, mobile device, or smart TV.
Many others require you to download giant video files, that are then a pain in the butt to skip around. With the KTS Online videos, it is separated into over 100 chapters that are clearly defined. What results is a very fast and streamlined loader for a smooth experience.
Is there a new version of the Kimura Trap System?
The Kimura Trap was released on August 2012, and since then the system has evolved. I have made tweaks to certain techniques, discovered new ones to add on, and found ways to increase pressure and leverage to maximize the finishing potential of the Kimura Trap.
I have held several webinars to share this updates with people, but I am going to do something even better – offer updates online for free!
Through my MMA membership site, FFAcoach.com, there is section devoted solely to the Kimura Trap System. Any updates made to the system will be uploaded and be available to everyone who orders the Kimura Trap System at no additional charge. So now you will always have the latest version of the system at your disposal.
As of April 8, 2019, we have an additional 7 hours and 38 minutes of techniques and revisions currently online. That brings the total video running time to a whooping 11 hours and 52 minutes!
What is the Satisfaction Guarantee?
It is real simple. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the Kimura Trap System within 30 days, send me an email telling me why you did not enjoy it and pack everything back in a box and ship it back to me. Once I receive all the items, I will give you a full refund.
Do you ship international orders?
Yes, we ship all over the world with USPS First Class International mail. Depending on where you are in the world, the shipping can take up to 25 business days.
However, all DVD orders come with online access, so you will have instant access to the online portal. Personally, I recommend just getting the online course, as it is in high quality video (HD and 4K), easier to scroll through, and has all the updates.
