    yes, we did. I tapped to a variety of things at MITB6 in May, some of which may not have been subs at all...like I'd know.

    It was a real eargrind, let me tell you. This whole discussion is an eargrind.

    My Opinion: We have all tapped to pain moves at one point during grappling, especially when we're n00bs. Grappling n00bs (which I'm assuming Rudy was during his Gong Sau) don't know the difference between pain that will cause injury and pain that is only discomfort. Rudy tapped to a pain compliance move, so have I, so have you, let's move on.
    2 important things to remember though-

    1- most grappling noobs dont go around pontificating about how their kung fu is the ultra and they cant be beat by a grappling noob, which anthony was.

    2- none of this would even ever be bought up again if rudy wasnt an obnoxious self important clownshoe, accepted he had faults in his system of training, and did something about it.


    oh and Rudy, Sang is one of those guys who, you know, wins fights here. unlike say you, or sirc, who talks about fighting and only shows up to lose. youre just a fatter older version of him.

    I love my Ke?po tag. It makes me feel special. It also reminds me of the ignorant self important clownshoe I was when I first joined the site. Now I'm a slightly less ignorant self important clownshoe who is 10x more capable than I ever was, yet 100% more aware of the vast amount of technique, finesse, and ability I don't possess that many others do. :D

    You stated my own opinion better than I could, especially about the moving on part.

    I definitely had more fun on this site before I had all the tags. Damn it.

    Happy is Eargrind, sweet her artless daughters;
    Enough their simple loveliness for me,
    Enough their white gi'd arms in silence clinging:
    Yet do I often warmly burn to see
    Beauties of deeper glance, and hear their singing,
    And float with them about the summer mats.

    True. I was actually going to point out that Rudy tends to put his foot in his mouth a bit, but I have to post quickly while at work.

    I feel a knee fire on a fragile human form
    Has it been shorn off? Have I suffered grevious harm?
    In North Carolina somebody grabbed my arm
    The flesh broke so cold it stilled the weapon of my palm

    This is Eargrind
    This knife of coldflesh steel
    This is Eargrind
    This is how it feels

    I'm on my hands and knees frozen in that pose
    He won't go for the guillotine
    Or hook me with his toes
    "Some C-M-A" confronted by his soul
    I'm out at sea, too far off, I can't go home

    This is Eargrind
    We're not supposed to try for
    This is Eargrind
    And I'm never gonna cry no more

    Black shadow of Macaco
    Falls on the Ringside line
    I got my baseball hat on backwards
    But I'm walking all the time
    South Atlantic wind blows
    Ice from a dying creed
    I see no glory
    Get the Yuppie off of me

    This is Eargrind
    We can chain submit; you fail
    This is Eargrind
    Gonna puke into this pail

    This is Eargrind
    The land of the Shaolin dances
    This is Eargrind
    Land of the dragon stances
    This is Eargrind
    This knife of Human steel
    This is Eargrind
    This is how it feels...

    Also: there's tapping to someone intentionally drilling a pain move (like grinding their forearm into your throat from a top position), and there's tapping to someone who's grinding on you incidentally while moving around.
