I love this grip break! I came up with this one while exploring finger and small joint locks. By that I mean joint manipulations with fingers…. which is illegal in BJJ and MMA matches. But I do think they have some relevance to self-defense. The problem is practicing them safely while keeping your digits in tact. I started looking at how I could use them safely and effectively during a grappling match. Not as an submission but in other ways. For example: releasing gi grips, choke releases, etc. In this video I demonstrate a really cool release that will work on ANYONE’S grip! Why? because like good Jiu-Jitsu it requires little strength or effort. Give it a try and please be mindful of your partners fingers… Happy Training Ninjas!
