  • 3. THE COMPLETE BOOK OF WRIST LOCKSTHE COMPLETE BOOK OF WRIST LOCKSCopyright 2001 Dr. Ted Gambordellahttp://www.martialartsweapons.net2I have always loved to do wrist locks since I first began my martial artstraining over 35 years ago. From the very beginning I knew that wrist lockswere one of the most effective controltechniques of the Martial Arts and onethat didn’t require a lot of strength, speed or stamina. But they did require alot of practice. For even the simplest wristlock is very sophisticated andthough they may look very simple to the average observer they are in factvery difficult to master. It is always very funny to watch a great aikido orjiu-jitsu master doing some marvelous wristlock, causing great pain andanguish to the student and to then have the other students try to do the samething. They never get it right and never make it look so simple. That is thebeauty of wrist locks, they look so easy, yet they require significant practiceto master.I decided to write this book on wrist locks to teach the beginning student thecorrect ways to practice wrist locks and the correct applications of basic andadvanced wrist locks. You will learn the Correct way to start and finish allwrist locks. You will also learn the correct way to practice the wrist locks.And you will learn to finish the wrist locks, standing up and from theground. You will not learn to do unrealistic wrist locks that are too complexfor the average person to do and would in fact require years of hard training.You will be able to do all the wrist locking techniques found in this bookafter only a few weeks of practice and they will all be effective control andself defense technique against even the largest of opponents.An important reminder to students while practicing their wrist locks. Youmust learn to do the wristlock correctly and this means you MUST CAUSEPAIN to the wrist when you are applying the wristlock. It does not do thestudent trying to learn any good at all to have his partner tap out when theystart the wrist lock, at the first start of feeling any pain. They must feel thepain, and the student practicing must know what it feels like to cause thepain and how they started the technique and where and when the pain camein. You must not intentionally hurt your partner, but you must hurt them alittle to learn to do the wrist locks correctly. This might sound contradictory,when I say you must hurt them but you must not hurt them intentionally. Butyou will understand after you begin your practice. You must learn where and

You must learncontrol. And that takes practice and patience and a good partner.Basic Wrist locking PositionsThe human wrist is a marvelous thing. It can bend forward and backwards,and make circles right and left. It can bend up and down and a littlesideways, but it definitely has it limitations on where and how far it can bendin any of these directions. And the entire art of wrist locking is in knowinghow and where to over bend and over stretch the wrist to cause severe andimmense pain and disable or control your attacker.Lets look at the ways to bend a wrist so that pain is caused and one canbegin control techniques.The Wrist does not like tofen straight backwards.
