Have you ever heard of the saying, ‘Tap or Snap’? You may have, especially if you were — or still are — immersed in the realm of mixed martial arts.
Established in the Brazilian jiu-jitsu community, this pearl of wisdom refers to the options a fighter has should they find themselves in an inescapable position on the ground. It is very simple: either submit to your opponent or have whatever jeopardized extremity (ex. an arm or a leg) completely broken. Most fighters have avoided a ton of damage by tapping, but not all of them could save themselves from a painful snapping.
