in competition, you can push the limits sensibly, butI hate those idiots who just wont tap in training, and they think its cool
tapping is part of this game you are only as good as the people you train with
HQ washington vale tudo
no tapping in mma is not embarrassing .is being submitted in mma embarssing
what are peoples opinions on this. i know a guy who gets a little embarrsed when he gets submitted. i think its a little sad really. gettin submitted it part of mma, when i get submitted i learn from it and dont make the mistake again
spelling embarrassing as "embarssing" on a public forum is embarrassing though
SHAKUS MAXIMUS -
Depends on how much I tried to get out of it before it came to the tapping part
mma is just a game based on a duel where we play with our arguments of physical expressions to the point where we stop when its time to..... We dont play for keeps. The moutain of a mole of it is purely for marketing purposes,lol
Tapping ahhhhhhhh i understand now "Nurse can i have another morphine jab" !!!!
everytimme I get submitted I try to identify why, what I did wrong and how I can stop it happening again. if it happens with the same guy regular times then I try to pick their brains as to what I kept doing wrong, any you know what? they invariablly help you work it out. why? because its not embarrasing, its part of learning. the only time I could see it be embarrasing is if you recorded 10 straight losses via armbar or something!
