Don't mean to point out wrongs, but if I recall correctly, wasn't Mark Schultz penalised for using the kimura in the Olympics in 1984? Not sure though, I saw the footage before I started submission wrestling so my brain can't be trusted.
If it's legal, I'm extremely interested in how it could be incorporated into freestyle wrestling... And any other moves from various styles which have proven useful, for that matter.

Dunno if the link will work..,1540668
