Tap Dancing

Post  Chris on Tue Jul 23, 2013 10:40 am

Hi all,

An interesting question I was asked recently.

"Why would you tap out to a choke or strangle in training?"

Really got me thinking.

Before I outline my conclusions and my answers I'd be interested to hear what you think.

hmmm once you think about it that is a much deeper question than it initially appears!

I know I tap when someone has anything on which I consider to be an end move or has a very high probability of being such as then we can quickly move on and either go again or work out how I ended up in that position and try and learn where I made the mistake which put me there.

Jeez Chris, that is something to think about. I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts.

I always thought it was for safties sake, so a lock or choke didn't have to be taken to the point of danger but was effective. Also if you're being choked you can't really talk and you tap him cos he can't always see your hand...

Is it to obvious to say "to stop me from going into unconsciousness or maybe even dying?"

I agree with Dave. If a relatively untrained person is putting you in a choke, they won't have much idea about how far to go as such. Safety first.

A training mantra I live by is train hard but when you've finished all participants are injury free. That's the point of tapping out.

Erm guys, that shouldnt be an issue as nobody should be slapping chokes on for more time than it takes for both parties to realise "yeah its on" unless there is someone else there who knows what they are doing and is watching.

Having just started BJJ training I find the tapping to be a helpful learning tool. It is feed back that I'm applying the technique correctly. A trained instructor is there to give tips and make sure it's safe.The uke's roll in the teaching process is to give appropriate resistance and feedback(tapping in this case).

Because that's what I would do in a real situation... and hopefully like a good boy my assailant will release or at least let up a bit as they have in training or have seen on TV and then I'll turn the tables. Smile

When asked about choke defenses, besides not being there, this is part of my response, try tapping, you might be surprised. After all, if it's locked in, your done.
