Well dude is banned, but since to me this is an interesting topic.
I think it is important to know when you can and cannot keep going. I always encourage people in bjj who want to quit to keep going through class but with less intensity. Some times muscle soreness and lack of cardio needs a little push. There is always a point when you are sore and keep going, but i think deep down most of us know when it is a bad idea to press on. And without a proper coach/doctor/equivalent present, it is usually a good idea to listen to that deep down voice. Unless you are training for a competition where the immediate training will matter, you will generally have plenty of time to make up the day or two you miss.
You can train if your sore...not if your broken.
When I last broke my hand in March, I should have taken the normal course of 3 weeks off, two weeks no rolling, one week light rolling. I didn't, and my hand is still sore. That was being stupid.
There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

Soreness, as I understand it, isn't really completely understood. Usually its explained as microtears, but if microtears exist on the muscle tissue then its ability to exert force would be impinged and subsequent training at full volume would be impossible. Other reasons I guess could include lactic acid 'damage', or neurological growth/response.

What damage would Lactic Acid do? It's a natural side effect of anaerobic metabolism

You just gonna know what type of soreness your dealing with. If it's the normal muscle soreness I'll just work through it. Usually the soreness actually feels better after the workout. If you start feeling sharp pain, then stop. If you notice swelling it's best not to bother. Certain parts of my body used to get sore for almost 5 days (legs mostly and lower back) when I first started out, but your conditioning gets better.
