Deceptively easy, devastatingly effective. Why didn't I get taught this?? Have you guys seen this?

It was a video on YouTube. 

Grip fighting makes my eyes glaze over. The old school Helio Gracie gi would be awesome.

Learned at purple and had same reaction "why haven't I seen this yet!?"

This is one I think should subconsciously be going on all the time vs sleeve grips, similar to constant handfighting in the clinch in no gi. It's a great grip break!

It's important, but definitely annoying haha. Probably why they all but banned it in judo now

learned this as a white belt. This is something that you're taught pretty much day 1 in wrestling. There are all sorts of different grip breaks you can do, I'm very surprised if you haven't seen this sooner.

Wait, wait .... wait..... this fucking move has been here the WHOLE TIME!  

This is my actually reaction every time someone shows me something so simple that I never knew.

Makes sense, wish we still had a wrestling culture here in UK. In BJJ predominantly it's pocket grips and circling to break, that's the bread and butter technique that I'd wager most instructors teach

Does Meatgrinder's sleeve control negate this?

Comon in Judo and a very efficient break that works and non traumatic to the others finger.

I'm a fan.

I have a little video on youtube that covers this along with some other grip breaks.

That whole concept of using the yoke of your hand like that also works well no gi.

That's a good point actually. Much nicer than the twist

From a couple years back. It's not really much of a video, I think I had a cold or something when we shot this.

At 1:55 I cover the grip-break being discussed...
