    grappling on a rough surface GRAPHIC

    So I was sparring in the "martial arts room" in a new to me gym. The ground surface was a rough rubber surface of red and blue puzzle pieces. Anyway I shot for a single and the surface was rough enough to... see attached photo.

    Don't grapple on karate style mats.

    Edit: having trouble uploading a photo with my phone but I literally tore my toe half off.

    That's just plain nasty. Be careful people!

    Even on good mats you can have problems, I dislocated a finger 20 seconds into a grapple at a TD and I dislocated one of my toes doing a kick at my old JJJ school (Swain mats). The bottom line is that if your whole body is moveing in one direction and a small potion of it doesn't go along, bad things happen.

    You may want to get some Bactine on that.

    OUCH! just imagine if it was out on the street...

    I would hold off on grappling all together for a while. You might be man enough to bare the pain of your wound, but I bet that would invite a nasty infection.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer. Join us... or die

    that is an incredible wound, its so grievous it looks fake. For the love of Helio man, get better soon.
    Secret moves such as hitting a thing with your hand and hitting a thing with your leg have been stolen and degenerated by arts like karate, boxing, muay-thai, Kung-fu, and basketball. -Epicurious

    I figure fighting a group of chunners would be like water torture, its not the force as such, just the constant trickle of chain punches wearing down your sanity. -The Juggernoob

    Wow, that does not look pleasant. I'm moving this YMAS because it has nothing to do with technique and everything to do with nasty.
