They are a much-discounted submission in BJJ, but they are very, very useful, more so with the gi than without. As I recall, Ronaldo Jacare won three matches in one Pan-Ams using the 'mao-de-vaca' standing wristlock. This year's Mundials lightweight champion, Fredson Paxiao, is similarly renowned for his wristlocking skills, both standing and on the ground.Quote:
