    Unhealthy to be chocked?

    Anyone who does BJJ knows that you end up getting chocked quite a bit in class. A few times I've even had a headeache after class from being chocked. My question is, is getting chocked on a regular basis unhealthy for your brain, arteries, etc. ?

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's probably not doing you any favors and if you have a headache from it after class then you should tap faster

    Tap if you're getting chocked, unless you feel there's an object lesson or a mild high to be had from getting chocked all the way unconcious.
    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.

    It certainly seems to be affecting your spelling.

    What she said. If it's on it's on and fighting it ain't gonna help. You'll learn after a while a "chock" that is worth fighting and a "chock" that is worth tapping for.

    One thing I have been told by a number of sources is that the older one gets, the more one should avoid being choked, let alone out (let's ignore the fact for the moment that is probably isn't a good idea at any age to get choked). The rational for that is that plaque (I believe that was the term used) develops in one's veins and can be loosened by trauma to a given area. There is concern that plaque loosened in neck veins by the applications of strikes and chokes could cause a blockage in the brain and stroke you out.

    I've gotten this from a few sources, but have yet to verify it. Anyone wishing to practice medical-fu on this, go right ahead.
