    It's pretty typical white belt behavior in my experience to try one thing and one thing only and keep trying it even if it's obviously not working because well he's a white belt and he doesn't really know what much what else to do.

    So for a highly skilled individual such as yourself to just grind on somebody's jaw is pretty crappy.

    For a 265-pound plus Jiu Jitsu black belt to tap a110 pound female white belt by knee on belly is crappy.

    So it's all about the context.
    the jaw will fail if I squeeze overtop. I squeeze slow just like I extend slow with armbars, but if I let a student pretend blocking a choke with their jaw worked I would be doing them a disservice.

    Obviously don't hurt your partners is the most important thing but it's a legal this to do in bjj and mma. I teach my students the proper escapes. Blocking with the jaw isn't it.
