    Yeah, that's pretty much the worst possible way to land that I know of. On your head with all your body weight pressing your head to your chest. Plus another guy's body weight on top of it. Very similar position to the Randleman slam that should've crippled Fedor but didn't because he's Fedor.

    When I was a kid I landed in that position once and couldn't move for probably 20 seconds. And that was on a trampoline with nobody else's weight on me. I thought I was done. It was a terrifying feeling.

    This video has made me do some thinking today. I know it's a freak accident and freak accidents can happen in any sport. Both of my kids are training BJJ now. One of them loves it and one of them is feeling it out. I can say for damn sure I will never push them to train if they don't want to. Bad **** happens, but if it happened and I knew I had twisted my kid's arm to be there in the first place, I couldn't live with myself.

    Hurts like hell the entire time too. I did that when I was smaller off of a game. We were jumping from the slide to the monkey bars to the next slide over. I missed and BAM! haha

    Though accidents happen, is there anyway to prevent this sort of mistake from happening? Say dropping your hips lower or hugging up high? Because I end up in that sort of position a lot in Wrestling while being flipped around and now I'm a little worried.

    The poor kid had his neck fractured in the high-C area. He is totally fucked and my heart goes out to him and his family. No chance of recovery folks. He will most likely succumb to pneumonia down the road. Patients like this suffer from respiratory issues as time passes. It breaks my heart.

    My Kids were taught to finish what they start. Other than that, they will be pushed to excel not to participate.

    That is a very fine law line to draw in competition. Such a margin for error.

    I've had some close calls too with my neck. Including on a trampoline and skiing. It's a very scary feeling for sure.

    I keep watching the video...what the adult did to the kid was not necessary, and,more than likely the 15 year old should not have been competing in an adult division. He did look fairly well developed and skilled for a boy his age,though.

    Neither of my boys do Judo...I'd be more worried about their knees than their necks...

    Yay! I'm glad he's recovering.

    "There are still two, purple and brown, since I'm in blue. But I'll recover, to fight back and I'll get to black belt. I'm sure of that, "Gabriel assured.
    He's also ready to get back on the mats. Damn, props to him.
