I heard something crack and thought I was fucked. For two days I could not move my neck at all. Now I have mobility back, but it still hurts when I look sideways and I can hear it go snap, crackle n' pop every time y rotate the neck. Is this just from inflamation, or should I get it checked? Ive been sitting it out these past few days, but am anxious to get back to trainning.
Neck injuries are no joke. As a rule if it aint normal get it checked out.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

i didnt really learn any break falls in wrestling. however we trained our necks for flexability and strenght constantly. i cant say i ever saw anyone with a serious neck injury in my 10 years or wrestling, me included.

Some people in my gym are getting a little bit stack happy. I mean by all means put it on but bending you right over backwards and seriously straining the neck seems a little OTT when having a 'light roll'.
Good thread, the last few stacks i received had me thinking the same question

I think it's clear that if you just start mma, you shall not slam or put any power in your strikes
At the begining the game is purely positionnal, you shall learn the good defensive positions, ie which positions are not going to let your opponent transform you into a bloody pulp
rather to slam an adversary, better to decide that the lifter put the guy back to the ground but that the last one shall release its submission
bottom guy shall learn not to get lifted by grabbing a leg of the lifter, that is position learning
If you work an other way, your class will not last long, soon everybody will be in the hospital

I think most of the injuries that occur in grappeling are in the takedown stage. Once you are on the ground the danger is less severe. Unless you are rolling with a jerk who wants to apply every technique at 100 percent.

You don't need to be "advanced" to do sparring of any sort, but you do need experience and practice prior to doing so so someone doesn't do something ridiculous, like trying to release my guillotine hold through wrenching my pinkie finger.
