This just in: arm bars are bad for your arm..
I got caught in an armbar last night at training. Nothing new, happens all the time, but with my right arm trapped, and my left tangled in my Gi, and my hips over my feet, I couldn't tap. I said "tap" three times before the guy I was sparring with heard me (hard to be heard when your face is smashed in the back of someone's leg). It sort of messed with my head for the rest of sparring. My head out of my game, I ended up getting tooled. Needless to say my ego was pretty sore last night, and my elbow is pretty sore today.
In other news we worked on knee-on-belly last night. Cool stuff, I even mounted from there in sparring (before the above mentioned armbar).
