x4 Combat Jiu-Jitsu Arm Breaks for Real Self Defense

Free TRITAC Intro Course:

Learn 4 ways to break the arm using TRITAC-Jitsu concepts and Japanese Ju-Jitsu or Aiki-Jutsu Techniques for Modern Street Self Defense.

Matt Bryers and Sean Jugler, co-founders of TRITAC-Jitsu use a lot of Japanese Jiu-Jitsu, especially Aiki-Jutsu Combat Techniques / Concepts to attack, submission and break the arms combined with the modern combative entries found in TRITAC.

The Jiu-Jitsu Arm Breaks we teach in this Combat Jiu-Jitsu Video are:

1.) Kimura Lock Submission / Head Smash and Break. Learn how to use the Kimura to control and attack your opponents arm/shoulder. You can use the Kimura lock to throw your opponent or simply smash them into the wall 🙂

2.) Straight Arm Lock – One of our favorite Jiu-Jitsu Arm Breaks is the straight arm lock from the underhook control. Underhook controls combined with Combat Jiu-Jitsu Striking Techniques gives you the opportunity to break your opponents arm using simple jiu-jitsu techniques.

3.) Kote Mawashi – is a common wrist lock or joint lock that is often found in Aikido / Japanese Ju-Jitsu / Aiki-Jutsu systems… but is taught in many martial arts. Typically this jiu-jitsu arm break or wrist lock technique is hard to execute. But, combine it with Combative Striking elements found in TRITAC, and it becomes a very powerful joint lock or arm break for self defense Jiu-Jitsu.

4.) Inside Arm Twist – The last Aiki-Jutsu Self-Defense Technique is a jiu-jitsu arm break that takes a good training partner to learn this jiu-jitsu technique. Or… not only will you break arms, but you’ll smash your training partners face into the ground. For Jiu-Jitsu Self Defense … who cares!
