“Sleeper Stretch” for Improved Shoulder Mobility and Decreased Risk of Injury From a Kimura Submission

One of the absolute best shoulder stretches you can do if you have tightness in the shoulders. There is not much room for error when you get put into a Kimura shoulder lock. If the arm goes too far, then you risk serious shoulder injury to the rotator cuff and surrounding shoulder tissue. Doing this stretch can improve your shoulder range of motion specifically into internal rotation, which will limit the strain on your rotator cuff and shoulder capsule and decrease the risk of injury if you get caught in this submission. Hope this helps! #jiujitsu #bjj #kimura #jiujitsutherapist #jiujitsuPT#the_jiujitsu_therapist #shoulderinjuries #derbycitymma #derbycity
