Followed the link from the other current "why didn't he tap" thread, which of course linked to a bunch of other touney arm breaks, many of them of them spectacularly gruesome. Probably not the wisest course of action with my 1st comp coming up. It did lead to a question, however. I have a sense of my "tap limit" for training...I'm not some crazy "never tap" guy, but I generally will let a sub go until it's pretty sunk in before I tap...at training intensity, this usually means 3 seconds or so for an armbar depending on who I am rolling with. All of those ugly YouTube breaks were over in that time. Do I need to think about re-calibrating my tap limit for this comp? I'm a total newb, 2 months and not especially talented so I'm not looking to medal, just get some early comp experience. Needless to say, a major involuntary mat vacation is not the sort of experience I am looking for. Would appreciate some insight from the more comp-experienced posters. I'm just being paranoid...right?
