    Game fucking over. That looks like a complete paralyzation for sure. Absolutely heartbroken for that guy. The worst nightmare for any grappler.

    Ukemi is everything. Learn how to fall, but also be purposeful that you do not ever throw yourself into any falling body weight situations at high velocity.

    I screamed internally. That is horrifying and while I currently do not have flying submissions in my arsenal, this encourages me to stay that way.

    Freak accident, not a fan of flying shit but this time it was mostly bad luck. I teach kids and I'm against flying arm bars, flying triangles or jumping guard there's hundreds of safer and better techniques (for the guy who does it and for the guy who it's done to).

    As a guy with neck and spine issues, I can't even bring myself to watch.

    Hope he can have some quality of life after this.

    Flying armbars are stupid, you are dependent on the other person to hold your weight up.

    Jumping closed guard and closed guard subs should be illegal, as I’ve said many times. It’s both extremely dangerous and very unrealistic as a combat move.

    In my very first Judo tournament I watched a girl get carried off on a stretcher from a broken neck. Happened right as we had walked in. My wife was like...:eek::eek::eek:.

    Shit's real ya'll.

    Imagine playing inverted guard on your neck.

    Now imagine being dropped onto that position because you failed a flying armbar.

    You bloodthirsty mongrel. How many cross collar chokes from closed guard victims does it take to satisfy you?
