Can you break your neck in Jiu Jitsu?
Neck injuries are actually very common in BJJ. We are always getting put in positions that put a strain on the neck, whether it’s a headlock, we are inverted, or even getting stacked. That part of our body takes a beating in this sport. The most common though that I see in BJJ is the cervical sprain or strain.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: Chokes and Holds BJJ is a grappling-based sport. BJJ is great because it doesn’t rely on strength or size to submit your opponent.
