Continuing where the last position left off, Xande is on top in the deep half guard, and has the arm trapped, ready to attack the Kimura. Xande keeps the arm hugged tight to his body, and he leans back to create the space to slide his other arm underneath. Now he switches his hands, grabs his opponent's wrist, and then his own, locking the Kimura grip. His opponent is now defending by holding his hands tight together, so Xande shows two options to break his grip and finish.

Another option is to lower his head to the mat, roll over his shoulder, and finish with his leg on top of the head, where he can easily break the grip and finish.
