RORY MILLER's bestselling video.
Learn to Improvise Joint Locks Under Pressure:
Joint locks are widely regarded as one of the most versatile physical
tools-- they can move, immobilize, submit or severely injure a threat.
They are also justifiably regarded as one of the more difficult of
martial arts skills to implement in real life.
In this video, Rory
Miller makes the case that the problem is not with the locks themselves,
but with our teaching methods.
A principles-based approach allows
relative beginners to improvise joint locks with one hour of training,
something that many traditional approaches have failed to do with
hundreds of hours.
Joint locks are NOT primary self-defense techniques.
If you are in a position that requires self-defense you are justified in
and likely need a higher level of force.
However, if your job requires
controlling violent people with minimal injury you must be good at joint
locks and you must be able to improvise them under pressure.
