Wristlock(s) Of Doom with Fredson Paixao & BJJ Hacks TV

We call them a "dandy" at my gym.
The phrase can be used as a noun or as a verb.
Example: "He just got dandied!" in the event someone just tapped due to wristlock.
Example: " Man, that dandy really hurt my wrist" in the event your tough guy Jiu-Jitsu wrist joint is left smarting from the "mao de vaca" translating roughly as the "hand of the cow."

For those of you new to Jiu-Jitsu or behind on your history, Fredson Paixao is an expert at wristlocks (along with being a BJJ World Champion among other notable credits on his resume).

- 3x World Jiu Jitsu Champion (2001, 2002, 2005);
- 8x Brazilian Jiu Jitsu National Champion (1997, 1998 and 1999 as purple belt, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 as black belt);
- Fredson is also in that rare category of belt jumpers because "Master Osvaldo had other plans as he decided to promote the prodigy to black belt straight from purple belt by the end of 1999."
Aside from a mixed martial arts career, Fredson will forever be tied to his extensive knowledge of wristlocks. Enjoy.

So add the Oscar Wilde of the submission game to your arsenal and join the underground group called the flopping dandies.
