Wristlocks

A wristlock is a joint manipulation that can be applied in a number of ways to achieve pain compliance. The wrist will rotate in a number of directions; it will bend in a single direction until its movement stops naturally. In a wristlock, pressure is exerted beyond the wrist’s natural ability to bend or twist the joint. A wristlock can be executed when someone tries to grab you or is successful in grabbing you or your equipment. You can also perform a wristlock when you wish to initiate control of someone.

Reverse Wristlock Takedown

Technique

~ Begin with the aggressor placing his right hand on your left collar/shoulder.
~ Place the palm of your right hand on the back of the aggressor’s right hand and wrap your fingers across the fleshy part of his palm below his little finger.
~ Twist the aggressor’s hand to the right while placing that hand against your chest. Bring your left hand up, to support your right hand by grabbing the aggressor’s hand between both hands, mimic praying. Apply downward pressure on his hand against your chest. Leave the aggressor’s hand on the chest to fully control him and to gain leverage. The aggressor’s hand should be rotated 90-degrees so that his palm is facing left.
~ Step back with your right foot to maintain better balance and lean forward to use body weight to add additional pressure to the joint. See figure 2-45.
