    My trainer had a in house BJJ/MT/Judo comp at the school(for free) just to give everyone a chance to compete in a competition setting. All the affilate schools came in and we had pretty decent sized divisions(still not the size of a normal comp though).

    I did the advanced no gi and gi.

    I just wasn't used to how tournaments worked. I normally don't grapple very methodically. I lost both my opening matches while up on points by trying for a stupid submission just because I thought i would be cool to catch them.

    In no gi I got single legged but I got a deep guillotine and got a submission point for it. I went for a go-go and got my guard passed :( We ended up in a scramble and he got a straight ankle lock that I fought off for a while but he twisted a funky way and even thought it wasn't "heel hooking me" at the angle and how he was putting pressure on it was tweaking my knee so I tapped out(even though my foot was about to slip out. I don't want to fuck up my knee on a free bjj tourny).

    In gi I ended up pulling guard(my gi take downs are worse than my no-gi) and we fought for awhile. I ended up in north south and twisted over and got a single leg on him and got 2 points for the take down. Then I ended up in his half guard and instead of playing a safe game I let him have the underhook on purpose to try to get a darse choke then I got reversed. He caught me in a funky gi choke.

    I'm gonna try to get the video's uploaded if I can get them off my cousins camera.

    I learned a lot though about how you should grapple in a bjj tourny.

    After watching the video I wasn't up on points in the first round and I was tied in the second one. First round it was 2-1(he passed my guard) and in the second video it was 2-2.

    Oh well. Video uploading now.

    nice, can't wait for videos. I am surprised though, I thought you have been competing for a while now? Seems like a rare thing to compete for the first time after you get your blue.

    I know you will probably be gone and wont feel like driving 5 hours, bet there are a couple big tournaments coming up in Atlanta if you wanted to try them. Casca Grossa and NAGA

    And I was glad I got my first tournament out of the way. I was nervous and get pinned by a sand bagging wrestler. For some reason my mind went blank and I couldnt remeber what to do from half guard (this was about after 3-4 months of training)

    It's a good thing White/Blue belts in NAGA can't do any form of leg locks. Those shit are scary :noes:

    yeah... Naga kind of fucked up with those rules in no gi. Heel hooks in novice divisions are just stupid.
