5.  They Don’t tap, They Nap or Snap

This is more for street fighting or in a tournament. There is a certain point where your opponent needs to make the decision to give in or get hurt. This is the beauty of jiu jitsu for self-defense. In a striking art, you punch, kick or hit until they quit, but in jiu jitsu you can hold a person down until the police arrive, or submit them if they continue to resist. In a tournament, you must be willing to finish an opponent who won’t tap or give in. The truth is, there are people in the world who will fight with a broken arm, so I recommend chokes. No one fights when they’re asleep.
