Back in 2007 I asked folks to email me if they had ever been choked out while training Brazilian jiu-jitsu. And in 2008 we had an audio interview with The FightWorks Podcast’s chief medical correspondent Doc to examine how being choked out affects the brains of people who train jiu-jitsu. But we’ve never once had a poll about it!
So let us know in the poll here if you have ever been choked out. I am also curious when this happened to you; were you a white belt when you got choked out? Or did it happen later as an advanced jiu-jitsu practitioner? Let us know by adding a comment here and if you’ve been choked out multiple times in your jiu-jitsu career, mention that too!
