Big Toe Injury Rehab For BJJ (Part 1): Exercises and Tips For Day 1 After Injury

,

Injuring the big toe can be a serious hinderance to your BJJ. It can effect your movement, explosiveness, and limit your ability to perform at a high level. Injuring my big toe a month prior to my tournament was a major concern as at limited my ability to drill and perform cardio. I go through the injury, what to do in the first 24-48 hours, and how to recover from the injury as quickly as possible to get you back to training at full capacity.

What is the most dangerous leg lock submission and should you practice it?

What is the most dangerous leg lock submission and should you practice it? Any submission can be dangerous but some can cause more damage than others. Inverted leg locks tend to be more dangerous as the consequences of being in the submission too long can cause serious injury and keep you off the mats. The unique think about inverted leg locks is that they usually are not very painful until the tissue (ligaments or tendons) ruptures causing injury, which is why grapplers feel they are fine but tend to tap when the pain ensues (which is usually too late). You should definitely practice all submissions to know where the dangers are and to also be able to safely apply and defend the techniques.
