You're not allowed small joint (fingers, thumbs, toes) manipulations in UFC, or BJJ. But in the Police Academy (Dirty JJ) their bread and butter is controlling that thumb, which leads to controlling the elbow, to the shoulder. They teach a lot more controlling small, weak portions of the body (fingers, wrists, ankles) which leads to controlling the connecting strong points (arms, legs). BJJ from my classes seems to be teaching me to control the body, and take advantage of any mistakes by isolating a part of the body.
Another little thing he taught me... if you grab onto an earlobe, you'll find that it has a nice grip for you. And grabbing a person's ear is much more effective than the ol' school fishhook (you can be bitten, and the lip is much more slippery). I'm gonna work with him twice a week, in the late night so it doesn't interrupt with my BJJ classes.
Anybody from around (or make it to) the Cincinnati area that trains?
