I missed you guys! why'd I have to get banned during the 2 weeks we had an UFN, a PPV w/ 2 belts going to new owners, and my first comp?!?! anyway my first comp, tho losing, I achieved my goal of staying calm and relaxed and not blowing my wad in 10 seconds, or going out there and trying to match my opponent's intensity and letting him set the pace of the match. I lost by points the first match but if I'd had another minute could have evened it out, I was moving into a position I'm pretty good from. Considering my opponent was sandbagging (he's been competing grappling and MMA for a number of years) and I've only been training the gi with any regularity for 2 or 3 months, I did OK by not being subbed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjJxd7VWoEc second match I lost quickly to a collar choke which honestly I didn't know how to defend. oh well. gotta work my gi stuff more. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbnhHECykvI I also didn't get to compete no gi, where I'm much better, because I didn't make it to the place on time sunday, but almost nobody showed so it was all weights and experiences in a single bracket, and 99% of the people competing were from my academy and I get to roll with them all the time, so I didn't miss out on much. anyway I missed you guys!
