comment Why is using wristlock throws so frowned upon in BJJ even though they are not illegal?
Aikido aside, are wristlocks really seen in BJJ as low-percentage? I'm not sure I think that's true, or if I know exactly why BJJ doesn't prioritize them. I certainly think wrist locks (but not usually wristlock throws) are fine techniques in some scenarios.

comment Are there viable ways to simulate the body reactions to a punch landed to the face?
@ElMynx One of the biggest effects of taking hits, whether to the body or head, is exhaustion. Having a big gas tank and experience fighting through fatigue is critical.

That's why I quoted you, and then asked two questions. The first corresponds to your point 1. The second corresponds to your point 2.

That doesn't test the technique in question. A test for the technique in question would be to chop someone like me in the neck. I'd prefer to wear a mouthpiece and be allowed to defend myself. This is my point: you have no basis of knowledge for the statement I quoted in my first comment.

I didn't say it was a concussion, but you're right that we wouldn't see a fencing response in a choke-out as opposed to a KO. But the point remains that he did a forward roll instead of falling over unconscious like someone choked out, which leads me to ask: if you admit he's not rendered unconscious, then what is the effect of the technique?

It's a forward roll. Which unconscious people tend not to do.

I assume you mean the knockout at 1:00. Honestly it looks fishy to me in two ways: 1) uke does a break fall while supposedly unconscious, and doesn't exhibit any of the telltale behaviors of a person knocked out (e.g. stiffness, fencing response), suggesting he may actually just be falling for his teacher. 2) Hitting a defenseless opponent tells us nothing about my question, which is implementation against a live, resisting opponent in a chaotic situation. The example at 1:35 is not much better. This is fakery and tomfoolery.
