Style: MMA noob
You are probably right, I think they are over-comitting to the throw, and when it doesnt work they find themselves in the poo. Does that mean I should look for another club, as these guys are blue belts and incapable of pulling off a throw. We do train full force against resisting opponents for probably 70% of the 1 and a half hour lesson, so wouldnt you expect these guys to be overly half arsed. Although it is a young class, most of these guys have are 18 and have just come through from the junior section of the club, wheras I am probably the second oldest in the club at a young 25, and am a lot stockier than these guys that seem to have just finished their growth spurts.

Bear in mind that we only train twice a week and do not have the physiques of pro sportspeople, who I am sure would just outmuscle a bear-hug.
You subbed a guy...with a bearhug?
I am 6'4" and 310
I have never subbed anyone with a bearhug.
The sub you describe above sounds a little . . . unorthadox as well.
There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

To keep them standing up as opposed to allowing them to collapse their legs, you keep the top of their head angled towards the ground, which puts pressure on the neck and spine (very unpleasant)
The problem with this kind of stuff is that, even if it works, you had the position to choke them out when you started. I see no reason to ever start on all this spine manipulation stuff when you could just RNC them gently to sleep.
Have you ever hit this move against a fully resisting opponent?
