    If it's so effective why aren't BJJ comps won with that as soon as the opponent takes a lapel grip instead of wasting all that time on the ground?

    Being an effective submission once you have it locked in, and being easy or even possible to setup and apply are two different things. I know my instructor(bjj) can setup many techniques that I just can't at my current skill level. That does not mean they are impractical, it just means I need to practice them more.

    This wrist lock will submit someone if you can set it up. I've done it to white belts in bjj. However setting it up is very hard to do and very situational. I am kind of known for being a fan of weird gimics like wrist locks in my bjj club. I have found a few very effective and easy to setup wrist locks, and a ton of very hard if not impossible to setup wrist locks that are just as effective. It does not stop me from going for them though when I want to have fun.

    The hardest part about setting up a standing wrist lock (vs a wrist lock on a guy on the ground which is much much easier) is just like throwing a person you must take their balance first. If I stand there, give you my arm and you try to wrist lock me, it is going to be very hard if possible at all. You have to get as the judo guys call it "Kuzushi". This why I find standing wrist locks to be so hard to use. You have to take a persons balance while still maintaining the position needed to submit them. It's much easier to just punch them in the face or throw.

    again....

    1. NOT ME in that picture, its an example of what I was doing. I didn't have time to set up the porno tri pod to show you what I was doing while he was in my guard...

    2. Its NOT a high percentage move, it takes BOTH of your hands to do it, and is easily hand faught.

    3. There is nothing wrong with tea party's.... just ask Sushi. Thats his go to move for dates.

    I can tell from my own experience that people trying to bend and twist my fingers and toes when I have backmount, often get choked out.

    Does the Ear Twist count as "small joint manipulation"?

    I don't think so. Sometimes things like ear pulling, clavicle pulling, etc get grouped in.

    Unless you have JOINTS in your ear, no.

    There are three bones in the middle ear: hammer, anvil and stirrup. I don't think they are technically joined though and you'd have trouble manipulating them without surgical instruments.
