Insane heel hook leg break….Tap Early Folks!

In round 7 of the recent MA1 Challenge Qualifier, Ashley Wright sustained a break of the fibula and tibia while fighting off a heel hook.

Even though Ashley had trained with heel hooks before, and is an amazingly competent practitioner of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, this was a freak accident and a reminder that these things can happen in combat sports. If anything, Ashley’s accident reminds us all the importance of tapping early in submissions, even when competing!
