Although completely independent of this remark from the first page, I feel it is relevant to quote it as I say that I would break his testicles.

Yeah, I said it. Is the thread over now?
I say the choke is your best bet. why? because you can knock him out for a couple of minutes and while hes lieing there on the floor you can do w/e to him, or even just walk away. but for locks your only breaking one limb or joint. they wont know what your move is doing, and when they feel pain theyll just try to resist it and have other body parts to hit you with until they hear a snap. and even then when you get up and turn your back, he might pop up and give you a variation of tigar claw low blow. and in chokes your taking his air and he cant really do **** if its a move like Rnc
There are plenty of subs that hurt LOTS before something gives. There's also the simple reality of GNP being more fun in a real fight.
Try and break the guy's femur. Impossible? Apparently not! (see below)
I've heard bones break (including mine) and wondered if there was a good sound recording on the net, as it's hard to explain what that sound is like. I've heard two - a good 'crack' is one, pretty common. The other is the sort of sickening crunch I heard when the floor won the fight and my collar bone busted, and the AC joint and shoulder decided to separate after a long marriage. (This is a bit of a cheat, as some of the noise was tendons snapping.)
The worst I heard was a femur - the whole dojo stopped, it was so loud. He was a Judo beginner (small and skinny) who went for a shoulder throw, completely missed and, as he turned he somehow got his legs caught up in his gi. He fell over really slowly and the snap happened before he hit the deck. Very urgent ambulance job. A few days later as I was laughing about it with some mates, one of the guys said: 'That was my little brother. He only started Judo for self defence!' Cue for even more cruel and ironic laughter.
Thinking back, the guy must have had brittle bones or some other problem, as I've never heard of a fractured femur in MA since.
EDIT: I'm wrong.
'After the 90 minute battle with Sakuraba, 90 minutes of punishing leg kicks, and 90 minutes without rest or water, Royce Gracie conceded the match and had his brother throw in the towel. After 90 minutes, Gracie could no longer stand and suffered a broken femur.'

I know you didn't ask me, but look at that new one. If it was scramble time and the Joes were coming, he couldn't hop into a jet and escape. It's all about funtionality, and the old skool CC has it going on. He looks like he could take a good 15 minutes on the oven before melting.

hey genius read the post more carefully before commenting. I said I think it's not a good idea to teach young *beginners* submissions. ie: It's better to force them to operate purely in terms of position in the beginning. I even elaborated on this in another post in the same thread.
