I dislocated my right big toe rather *abruptly* in a soccer match, and didn't even feel it until I took my shoe off and actually saw that the toe was pointing straight up. Chances are, a broken finger won't be enough to stop me, and you'll have given up the chance for a more effective attack by going after my hand.
It's like eye-gouging vs. head punching. If you can't hit the big target with the big weapon, how are you going to hit the small target with the small weapon? Same goes for joint locks. However, the ankle and wrist can prove an exception to this statement, assuming you can get a proper hold on them. Most wrist locks tie up both your hands.

Different people react differently to pain and trauma. A boy in the USA got both of his arms ripped off by a piece of farm machinery, dialed 911 with his nose, and stood in the bath tub so he wouldn't get blood on mom's carpet. That doesn't mean ripping a guys arms out of his sockets wouldn't be effective in a fight.

If you grab both of my arms to tear them off, I'll kick and headbutt you =P"Emevas,

>Did 9chambers really suggest PUNCHING A FIST?
Hehe! I'll punch anything!
Yea well, my fist was wrapped around the guy's finger and I was cranking it. If he would have blasted my fingers it could have loosened my grip enough for him to yank his finger out really quick. I'm not talking about punching the knuckles head on, just the fingers, thumb or wrist. I know this isn't a standard escape in most MA but I've escaped from wristlock after wristlock and grabs and whatever just by striking at people's arms and hands in the right places. It's not fancy but it works for me. *shrug*

I've come to consider small joint locks (finger, wrist, even up to standing elbow and shoulder to some extent) as "incidental/accidental" things. Like, it's good to know what to do when you're in that kind of situation, if it comes up (it might come up for women more than men, since in a confrontation, women get "grabbed at" at least as often as being punched, if not more, and someone reaching for my collar to grab me is FAIRLY likely to put their hand where I can grab it in return), but don't think think it's gonna happen alot or anything.Monkey Ninjas!

I have used wristlocks A LOT and successfuly on skilled and unskilled alike. I know for a fact that dislocating or breaking someones wrist is going to take it toll on th guy.
Fingers is a different story. One finger may go on noticed but two or more I can't really see someone functioning well unless they are used to it. JJ has a handicap that he overcame it not the same as suddenly and violently having the use of your finger taken away.______

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
