Small Circle Jujitsu

Attended a seminar on Small Circle Jujitsu sunday morning at Pitts' Martial Arts Academy in Oakland, taught by Professor James Hundon. I got there a little late, so I missed most of the warm up and break-fall exercises. Soon after I joined everyone, we began working on standing joint locks, a means to disable and control someone by manipulating the wrist, elbow and finger joints.

This was my first class on joint locks, although I have picked up some knowledge about them over the last few years. The ideas made sense to me, but the application was tougher than I imagined. I would love to spend some time practicing these techniques and learning to apply them. The locks allow you to cause someone great discomfort and pain without necessarily injuring them, making them very useful and less aggressive-looking than punching or kicking someone.
