All the annoying kids who passed all the flexibility tests in elementary school P.E. have now grown up to be equally annoying on the mats in jiu-jitsu. All that flexibility may not matter when it comes to chokes, but if you enjoy filthy wristlocks, all that bendiness may end up being a significant source of frustration for you.
In this video,Invisible Jiu-Jitsu‘s David Morcegao demonstrates a very dirty wristlock that will give you the power to tap out even the most rubbery opponents. If you have a teammate in mind who you always struggle to wristlock, try this variation on them and see how well it works!
