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.

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.

Or, "FOR ****'S SAKE LET GO OF MY FUCKING ARM WHEN I FUCKING TAP YOU FUCKING SPECIALIST!!!" You know, anything that gets his attention.Dedicated to legs and the disrespecting thereof.

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.Amateur MMA record: 8-3-1
Pro MMA record: 3-1

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
