You’ve probably seen the video in which a grappler, trying to do the Flying Armbar, falls down and seriously injures his neck… A horrific incident, one which everyone is extremely sad about and which is bound to leave everyone that watches it – even the most cold-blooded of jiujiteiros out there – with sweaty palms.
Therefore, it’s only natural to ask: are the flying submissions even worth trying? Are they ever worth it?
This is how it looks like when you try and fail at a flying triangle.
