    ... the joint closest to the finger nail?

    All 10 fingers have it and the first joints are the only ones that hurt. Enough so that I dont want to make a fist...

    any idea on what causes this? could it be training related?

    Yeah its the gripping and pulling of your opponents gi, not to mention that you're constantly trying to shove your hands and fingers into tight space as you battle for position. You get used to it. After rolling I don't feel pain but I notice the fatigue and very mild soreness.

    switching up between gi and no gi for me helps alot, gives my fingers more time to heal/recoup.
