Last week we ran the poll, Have You Ever Been Choked Unconscious While Training BJJ?. As Phil, a respondent to that poll, remarked, it’s a natural question to also ask if you’ve ever been the person doing the choking when someone goes lights out! Let us know by answering our new poll this week and we can compare the responses of the “choked” to “chokers”.
If you have ever choked someone unconscious using a jiu-jitsu technique while rolling, let us know what it was like! Did your opponent wake up and not know where they were? Did they do anything unusual?
As always, we must remind folks to be responsible training partners (not that you needed reminding, of course), and the same way we tap as soon as we’re caught, we must always stop choking our friends so we don’t cause any permanent damage by depriving their brain of oxygen for too long!
