    Understood and axiomatic. In my particular instance, I was trying to explain that the Uke was learning to apply Chokes and Strangles and the many ways they can be effected.

    Escapes are a separate drill.

    I never know which one is which and don't care. There are wind chokes and blood chokes. All else is jargon. Not knowing the difference has not kept from putting people to sleep.

    Just before Thanksgiving we did a 2 hour choke clinic, and I was choked/strangled 100+ times (estimated). I sounded like James Earl Jones for a week. It goes away, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Quoted for truth. It's quite common to get the throat sore during practice, but as somebody said, the trachea is not a fragile gelatinous **** either. If it were, no one would be able to get past their 6th month of training.

    I've found out that the best thing, at least for ME, is to rub and massage the throat with vick vaporub. No ice, no hot pads, no icy hot or tiger balm. Vick vaporub. Ice or hot pads don't do ****, and things like icy hot or tiger balm seem (at least to me) to be too strong for the trachea (they are ok for the neck muscles). But vick vaporub provides relief, just as it would with a cold/flu-related sore throat.

    Minor discomfort =/= oh ****, teh d34dl3y. I'm more concerned with joint locks on my shoulders and elbows over what people do to my neck and throat to be honest.

    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
