In my somewhat researched opinion, JP is no more guilty for this unfortunate accident than my sparring partner was for one of my ribs cracking under a normal mount last night - just a bone problem.

We actually practiced that same hold in class this week, and it is for sure a freak accident. My partner and I had our arms and way more extreme angles and for longer time with only the usual amount of pressure and discomfort.

Some people just have less range of motion than others. If someone tried that on me, my arm would snap well before that guy's did.
Lesson 1: KEEP YOUR ARMS IN.

make sure your training partners know and let the referee know if you compete, nothing makes you feel worse than hurting someone like that

It's nice that he made nice about it afterward, but it looks to me like he wasn't in a position to stop from extending the submission all the way through once he started.
I've been injured by black belts before, and I would never tell them to their face that it was their fault, because what would be the point? They'd already demonstrated they could damn near fucking kill me, so what am I gonna do? Tell them to **** off? To what end?
I had an instructor that did that, not to me, to some kid, busted his collar bone with a keylock, and he paid, tens of thousands of dollars to keep it out of court.

It snapped in the middle of his forearm. Freak accident. It is only the blackbelt's fault in that he was applying a submission.
How the **** are you going to predict that a guy's arm is going to snap in a move youve done thousands of times with no real ill effect. If the guy had tapped and the JP guy kept cranking and shredded his shoulder that would be one thing, that's not the case though.

It seemed to me it broke at the elbow, that's why I commented as I did. If it broke in the middle of the forearm, that's different.

His arm is floppy just below the wrist.
