    True story:

    One time I side-kicked a guy who was trying to flying knee me, he jumped too high and I hit him in the balls. He was not wearing a cup. Omega laughed hysterically and gave me a high five.

    You think a woman is bad? Just wait until you have kids. I used to be somebody. Now I'm a soulless automaton whose life revolves around soccer practice and kids birthday parties.

    Heh. As a white belt, I got choked unconscious from refusing to tap to chokes so many times, my instructor told me he would suspend me for six months if I didn't start tapping to them.

    I always thought I could fight out of it if I . . .

    It depends, if I know that the choke is picture perfect applied, I tap. (see RNC)

    If there's some wiggle space it's going to be a long fight until I turn purple, but I still have to be careful with that attitude.
    Over a year ago a n00b got me in a RNC, but he applied it on my chin instead of my neck. I didn't tap, but now as a party trick I can dislocate my jaw.

    If someone is jaw locking you, making no attempt to fix the choke, and you can't get out, don't just tap. Tap and tell them they were doing a bloody jaw lock.

    For ages I thought I had an awesome RNC. Then one day I was choking out this French guy, and after tapping he says to me "no, no, no, zat was not ze schoke" and explains to me where I was going wrong and how it was a foul. After that, any time I got a tap from an RNC I would ask if I actually had the choke on. About half the time the reply I got was "em, not really but it was very sore." Brilliant. I'd spent ages doing the thing wrong and nobody had bothered to tell me.

    It's they who are doing something wrong, in imagining that tucking their chin is a defence to the RNC. In demonstrating that this is wrong, you are in fact doing them a favour.

    I didn't say that I tucked my chin in, I said that he applied it to my chin. My neck was completely free.

    So failed future sirc is me but he has a girlfriend.

    I once had an instructor that abused me for three days for tapping out to a standing guilatine choke.

    Otherwise I don't need to be yelled at. I train because I am inspired by the team that I train with and I do not want to let them down by being the guy who makes hard stuff harder by quitting or complaining.
