I recently read an article in Martial Arts and Combat Sports about small circle Jiu Jitsu and I was wondering if anyone here practiced this art. If so What are its ups and downs?

I practice it sometimes. Our sensei went to a course in it some years ago.

The ups:
You don't use any strength when using small circle techniques.
Your opponent has absolutely no strength if done correct.

The downs:
It only works if your opponent is using strength to let's say, grab your wrist.
The circle must be perfect.

Small circles are very fun to practice, but quite difficult.

my Sensei teaches us Small Circle Jujitsu. It is a wonderful system to learn to make someone tap out with minimal force and to control somebody without hurting them too much. However in these fabled street fights that everyone seems to talk about, it would still work just on a much broader surface area of the body. Basically just imagine a Kimura lock with more wrist action that usual and you should get the idea
