    Wow, so the tapping encouraged him to go harder? That's pretty fucked up.

    When I started BJJ I was like 315 lbs (down to 270 now, but that's another matter). 90% of the problems I was having were because I was not putting my weight down properly because I was afraid of hurting the people that were signifigantly smaller than I was. Now that I know a little more about what I'm doing I'm not afraid to use my weight but I never try to muscle submissions. I could, but whats the point? I don't learn jack **** that way. Spazzes need to learn to just slow down and apply technique.

    The original spaz talked about in this thread has improved a little bit. He's not AS spaz and the kneebar/heel hook restriction has made him a lot less dangerous. One of the blue belts that's his size has been staying with him after class and working on technique with him. When he tries his spaz **** he pays for it.

The fucker smushed my adams apple bad enough I couldn't swallow for about a half hour and I still have serious pain swallowing 24 hours later. At the end of practice when I could half assed breath again and I accepted his appologies as genuine I was helping him with and armlock. I'd let him get about half way there then put up a fight and make him work for it. Well the cock sucker got locked in and sucked to his chest good and I told him to be careful but turn with his shoulders until I tap. He did and I tapped and he cranked it even harder and once again the coaches had to pull him off. The team owner told me next time we roll to just lay into his body until he give up his back and give his a a good chokeing in return. I suggested that they just get rid of the fat **** if he can't control himself.
    Don't allow yourself to be put in a position where you constantly get paired with this idiot because you're the one closest to his size unless he understands the tap means let go. The instructors need to talk to this guy to make sure he understands that tapping means to stop. Part of their job, in this highly litigious age, is to ensure you a relatively safe training environment.

    Control him as much as you can when you roll. Don't let him on top. When you're on top, slow you're game down, focusing on controlling him more than subbing him.

    Failing that, next time that fucker gets you in a sub and doesn't let go, scream as loud as you can, "The tap means let go!"
    Shut the hell up and train.

    I am definetly not out to hurt a training partner. Most of us there are competative and fight either amateur or pro so there isn't any sense in getting fucked up in practice. If the guy learned when to stop it'll be good. Honestly he's a nice guy but he looses it on the mat. It's a hell of a workout moving a big fucker like that around. He needs to learn that practice isn't the real thing and there is no dishonor or looseing face in tapping. We are all there to learn anyway.

    Don't train with him again. Refuse if you must. There is always the danger of an accident happening. It's part of the game, but it should come with the assurance of having partners with half a brain.

    The last thing you need is to be paired with fucking king kong. You don't want it, you don't need it.

    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

    That's so fucked up. How did he get away with this and not get barred from the gym? Acting like that is completely unacceptable.

    Or for a more entertaining story you could scream "Rape!"

    My hours (finally) got changed at work so I'll be in more. Maybe tossing me around will tire him out a bit.

    There is a lot of stress on the floor in our gym. The other day, I went to class where our 205 pound instructor was the smallest guy rolling.
