    Bjj does do wrist locks but they are considered a dirty move. So don't spring them on people unless you like knee rides and cross faces.

    Oh ill warn them that I'll be playing around with the concepts and from what I understand its not really a dirty technique it's just not focused on since I believe blue belt is where you can start using them in tournaments. The shoot fighting I did also used wrist locks to set up arm locks or finish an arm bars when people would grab their own arm.

    Osaka Japan and LA California were the two dojos that Steven Seagal taught at. Pretty much tenshin aikido practitioners are studying the method that he taught while teaching at those two locations. It's still just aikido but done with a different flavor and mentality.

    I suppose my point was he may have taught it in both but I was under the impression he himself learned it himself at the Osaka Dojo. I did study Aikido sometime ago and that was the impression I was left with from my Sensei.
