Gracie Breakdown: Avoiding repeat of deadly Louisiana tragedy

source: graciebreakdown

On Sunday, April 1, 2012, a Louisiana man was choked to death during a WWE party. 220 pound Stephen A. Arceneaux III and his 110 pound, 14-year-old cousin were at a house party and began wrestling around on an inflated mattress, when the youngster placed Arceneaux in a Rear Naked Choke.

After 30-40 seconds, witnesses noticed Arceneaux was turning blue so the choke was released. Arceneaux's girlfriend tried unsuccessfully to revive him before he was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 10:39 p.m.

In the wake of this tragic accident, the Gracie Brothers explain precisely how Stephen Arceneaux III was choked to death by his younger cousin with hopes of educating our youth about the serious risks of practicing jiu-jitsu techniques, chokes in particular, without proper training and supervision.

 The UG Blog thread title is in bad taste. Surely Kirik didn't write this?
