If your Gi you can grab your belt to defend then just try and work your way out from there (hang on maybe theyll get bored)... Hard though if they have your arm locked.

Dont get mounted......;-)

if mounted - bridge so he goes to guard and defend from there.

if side control, bring the knee thats on the same side as the kimura'd arm in between you and his arm and use it to break the grip.

Brilliant sl.

What you should've done, is not get mounted, take their back, then choke them out. Easy. It's how I do it.

Seriously, as Andy says, if you're mounted and they're trying to get a kimura on you, both their arms are tied up. Make sure you don't let them post with their leg and a sweep should be easy. Like any escape, you need to see it coming and act quick.
