Review: Art of the Wristlock
For the last many years I have trained with Roy Dean whenever our paths have met.
Each time it leaves me enriched both technically and personally.
A few weeks back I received a generic item in the mail from Roy.
It featured his newest DVD, The Art of the Wristlock.
In training with Roy occassionally and in seeing him lecture, I have discovered a lot about who he is.
If I may attempt to express some of what makes him distinctive, it is his attitude of inclusiveness, a clarity of instruction and ease in execution.
For these reasons he is not just a brilliant bjj practitioner, but more crucially a high quality instructor.
This new set is centered on Wristlocks.
If you come from bjj, you’ll likely feel that wristlocks are a bit of an odd technique at this level of our progress.
It reminds me of where footlocks were a few years back.
There was a point when they were out of favor and they have made a more recent comeback to prominence.
My hunch is that with this dvd set, the wristlock is poised to make a reappearance as well.
I know personally, that if I was rolling and was caught in a wristlock, as it occurred sometimes, I have psychologically considered it as a partial loss, I mean, I didn’t get triangled right? The fact is that it was just my stupidity.
Honestly, I assumed there was only the gooseneck form of a wristlock that I struck by mistake when I “ended up there”.
After studying this dvd set I now appreciate the subtleties of the wristlock and the time necessary on the entrances – because of that I think I will now respect them when they are applied.
The second intriguing thing is that unlike most dvds, I left this changed.
Let me clarify.
The amazing thing about Roy, and it comes through in spades in this concert, is his inclusionary world view.
As I sat and observed the seminars at schools more anchored in the traditional martial environment, I thought about how Roy was doing a tremendous job bringing them into the fold of brazilian jiu-jitsu.
How he was progressively pushing them into actual efficacy.
As with any transformation it begins from a point of familiarity so smartly, Roy would teach an aikido throw or movement and then bring it to the ground culminating in what you would think of as a conventional bjj move like an armbar or kimura.
So while I sat smugly in my bjj attitude, watching the seminar attendees get introduced to things like complete resistance, I quickly understood that they were not alone in their quest and I was in for a wake up call.
Roy continued to illustrate the specifics of various wristlock methods and then to my amazement, he showed their use on the ground.
And I am not talking about one or two positions.
He covers applications from the guard, to side control, to side mount, to back escapes, in clinch, from standing, from the knees, and on and on.
Quite honestly, I found myself thinking over and over again, “I gotta try that” or “I get there all the time and never saw a wristlock was there” or “that will surely work”.
So it was a terrific experience since I was transformed as much or more than people coming from a background of something like Aikido.
If Roy were here, I’d probably declare “mission accomplished,” but he’d probably just smile.
That being said, while wristlocks are the main focus, this is not a wristlock-only set.
During the workshops, I learned a lot about what I would call more conventional bjj (gi and no gi).
He demonstrated some excellent footlock entry, sophisticated finishes, triangle details, cross chokes, anaconda chokes, and other techniques.
There are several maneuvers with a high percentage, many of which I have forgotten over time.
So it was fantastic from that standpoint as well.
Last but not least, this DVD gives some light on Roy’s personal perspective.
These are pearls that you may include into your overall thoughts on the work.
Timing, “push/pull,” off-balancing, leverage, angles, and other concepts.
You’ll also hear him talk about pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone and the necessity of conditioning.
That’s the beauty of DVDs: you get to feel as though you’re sitting down for lunch with a real expert.
Attempt to get Jordan to sit down with you for an hour to discuss his training routine.
So, for whom is this? There are several bjj videos available, many of which I own.
Some are nicely done, while others are not.
Some are too sophisticated for novices, while others are debating the fundamentals we’ve all seen.
The beauty of Roy’s work is that it is novel to both bjj and tma practitioners.
I can honestly say that I was unfamiliar with all of the wristlock stuff in this package.
As a result, it is an excellent value and a wise purchase.
The Roy Dean Academy offers video for purchase.
