Kesa-gatame is a very basic judo hold-down, usually the first one taught to beginners. But it works at the very highest level. It usually happens following a throw because the classic sleevel-lapel grip in tachi-waza transitions well into this hold-down. Once both players hit the ground, tori's right hand goes under uke's neck while the left hand hold's uke's right arm around the elbow area.

Three types of escapes:
a) Bridge & Roll
b) Leg Entanglement
c) Squirming Out
