    My bad ! Even super/anti heros need acknowledgment. Much thanks to dead pool for the top video. As an anti hero would a virtual hug of thanks be going too far?

    I wasn't kidding about the importance of the top video to me.It really pointed out a big gap in my understanding.

    One of the biggest parts of learning is becoming aware of things that one does not know. I understand how hands grip large, inflexible objects (such as a wrist). I understand enough about the gross anatomy and function of the hand to understand points of weakness in this grip. I understand how to apply force to exploit these points of weakness.

    The top video made me aware that I do not have an understanding of

    1. how hands grip small/thin flexible objects (e.g cloth).
    2. points of weakness in this grip
    3. the gross anatomy of the hand that creates these weaknesses
    4. how to apply force to exploit these weaknesses.

    If anybody could point me in the direction of any information about any of these points I would be very grateful. :)

    There's 3 major types of grip, google them and read around the subject

    1) standard judo style, the entire wrist rotates outwards to tighten it, and inwards to slacken it.
    2) hook grip (thumbless),
    3) pistol grip (banned in judo)

    Each needs slightly different counters.
    1) is the most common/usefull in judo
    2 and 3 are more used in ground BJJ.

    Getting a good understanding of how standard mutual judo grips work is really important.

    Essentially as well as making posture control with the lapel, and arm control with the sleave/elbow, your using the armpit material to make underhooks via your grip connection.

    This is a super basic primer.

    pocket grip = hook grip
