Coach Martin’s Basic Locks and Twist Series

Basic Locks and Twist Volume 1  (11 videos)

The 11 videos in this section instruct the basic wrist locks. Learn the inside. outside, party, lifting and bent arm wrist flex. Additionally I share the push and pull draw of Ju Jitsu, Enjoy the journey.

Volume 1 covers the five wrist control locks and flexes plus the “draws” for releasing grabs from the most common attempts your opponent may use to grab and control you.  This information emphasizes how joint lock manipulations are used to reverse and release grabs, control your opponent and “lock” their joints so the more they resist the tighter the “lock”. This knowledge gives you the edge; it works on application not strength. Technique description is in depth giving you complete step by step instruction and application.  Coach Martin

And of course this set would not be complete if you didn’t have access to the knowledge of how to “choke” your attacker out.
