Also, take ibuprofen around the clock every 4 hours. Do these two things and I can *almost* guarantee inflammation will subside - unless you are suffering from a fracture or a really bad dislocation... even inflammations from minor dislocations or "jammings" can be controlled this way. Controlling inflammations as soon as they occur is critical.

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
