    This is quite a nice short intro on the rolling wrist lock entry of BJJ.

    I actually often do something similar, but not as good when im messing about with new guys with past TMA experience.

    Does anyone here have some good wrist lock set ups?

    :D :p That makes me laugh because I would be one of those guys! In my vocabulary what he did here is "sheonage" or "shiho nage" (depends on who is spelling it).

    But, yes, when I (very briefly) messed around with judo, I saw ikkyo and kotegaeshi all the time as grips were being attempted and stripped. The problem is that it's gone too quickly. The window of time to make a throw is very, very tiny, and the window of time to get an "aikido" thing was equally tiny. I could seldom make it happen because I couldn't do it quickly enough, but it was there. :( :(

    Edit: Ack, I just realized this is in the BJJ-specific forum, not a general forum. My bad! But BJJ'ers sometimes begin on their feet! :)

    But in Nogi practise its often all about the wrestling takedown vs open guard pull / guillotine/kimura trap, and in gi practise its really about the guard pull vs guard pass.

    We drill takedowns regularly where I train BJJ, though usually only for a few minutes each class (and not every class). Occasionally a particular takedown will be the focus of an entire class or most of the class.

    I use wrist locks all the time on the ground. Of course the hand-bent-backwards locks are quite common if someone pushes into your chest but goose-neck wrist locks are much rarer. I get away with these because no-one expects them!

    I use them sometimes as last-ditch escape attempt when caught in a triangle choke, too late to do a proper escape. Often, the other guy leaves a hand flapping free and with my free hand I grab it. His elbow is usually against the ground so I just close the angle on the wrist and push it towards the ground. I'd say that about 50% of the time it distracts him enough for me to loosen the triangle and work towards an escape. Occasionally it goes on hard enough to get a quick, panicked, tap.

    I also occasionally manage to use kote gaeshi from my knees or in combat base as a sweep, simply making the other guy roll away from it. Once again, rarely are they expecting it.
