THE IRON HOOK TO KING TUT: A BJJ SUBMISSION (AND NOT A HIP HOP DANCE MOVE OR SKATEBOARD TRICK).

It's rare to see purple belts developing their own techniques and teaching them to students.  I'm sure prodigies like BJ Penn were doing it when they were at that level in their grappling careers, but it doesn't happen often.  Purple belt Adisa Banjoko shows us a series he modified from something he saw in one of Kid Peligro's books. 

Aside from the inventiveness of this technique, what gets me about it is the wacky name.  The weird names BJJ players invent for their moves is absolutely hilarious and seems like another language sometimes.  To the uninitiated, I'm sure it must seem like the strangest -- and most stupid -- thing in the world.  With that, however, this move is indeed really cool.  I bet your opponent would never see it coming.

  1. I like that he renamed "wrist lock" but not the gift wrap/nogi cross collar, which would actually benefit from having a name.

  2. Is there a reason not to go for the armbar, instead of the wrist lock?

  3. The wrist is already controlled solidly. You don't have to adjust anything for it, other than a minor hip out. Keeping the grip on the wrist while turning your hips but for the armbar looks like it'd give you bad angle and the opponent the stack, You can't let go the the wrist to swivel because a savvy grappler is going to pull his elbow back to a safer position, since you don't have a grip to hold it in place and the hip is out of the way.

    Just my opinion though, haven't got a chance to try it out.

  4. If you are going to be using a wrist lock, also turn the wrist outward (towards its own thumb) while bending the palm to the forearm, much more effective

  5. Much thanks to dstryr and all the folks commenting. There are many more techniques. There is more than ONE armbar from the position. Its extensive, so I did not get into it. I plan to drop more vids next week, but I really appreciate you running the vid. I think you'll like some of the other subs.

    The IRON HOOK, is a variation of an over hook...The TUT, is like the old school Hip-Hop dudes...I had to do it...FORGIVE ME...

    Much respect fellas. Let me know how you like the upcoming stuff when it drops.
