    Imagine someones body weight laying on your wrist! Hurts like a bitch!!

    I do a butterfly wrist lock to arm bar a lot. When starting standing up most people reach out their right hand for my collar and I take it turn them down (not a traditional BJJ move) and immediately sit back with the arm bar...

    I'll try to find a video of that

    Its SIMILIAR to this but when I take him down I sit right to arm bar....it is not this exaggerated, and I do not take that first step but the grip is the same!

    Not a fan of wristlocks, but this is pretty sweet.

    wristlocks are the nastiest way to get tapped. this one is brutal, and i've been using it for a while.

    That is particularly nasty. Are wristlocks consitered small joint manipulations, or is that only like fingers and toes?

    Ok I'm a total newbie and not afraid to admit it, but watching the demo it looks like it would be trivial to power out of that. Is it a move that's done so fast that the opponent has no time to think about what's happening before it's too late? Seems like it after watching it being used in competition or whatever they're doing at the end there. And apparently it hurts really REALLY bad from that guy's borderline screams of agony.

    it's part speed, but once the arm is trapped you can't simply pull it out.

    Ok, I'll take your word for it because like I said, I am a clueless newbie. Humor for a second though: Wouldn't applying a lot of downward force using a lot of your body weight break the hold on the elbow?

    not if you secure it correctly, but it will cause you to break the guys wrist... which is why this move probably won't be legal for much longer. it's responsible for a lot of injuries, and very popular amongst brazilian black belts.

    I couldn't tell from the vid, but is he basically doing a modified gooseneck? If so I understand why that last guy cried out in pain. Ouch.

    Well it depends on which way the guys wrist collapses, most peoples wrist bends backwards, mine for some reason always bends forwards when this wrist lock is applied.

    I have had both of my wrists stuffed up from this wrist lock, we had one guy in class wrecking everyone with it until the instructor banned him from it... He applied it so quickly that crying out in pain was quicker than tapping.

    Nice! I have seen that type of wrist lock, except applied from guard. Not ness a high percentage move, but a cool move to have in your bag of tricks!

    I'm with you, in that my wrist goes forward as well with this lock...(well at least when we practice it)

    Wristlocks are no joke...you've got no time from when they're slapped on until your wrist feels like it's about to explode. We were working on them just last week, and just practicing them was painful....and even then you knew it was coming. Applied when your opponent is unprepared, could get ugly for him. Still a pretty cool weapon to have in the arsenal though. :icon_twis

    Learned that as a self defense technique at white belt from standing. I had always wondered if that was legal in sport bjj... but now, oh the opportunities!

    it's an inverted gooseneck, you're hand bends the other way, and because of the grip you have when he puts it on, it's pretty difficult to avoid if the guys is good
