    He is so much stronger than he looks.

    When we locked up it was impossible to drop for a takedown.

    His side mount feels like a 200lb side mount. It was hard.

    In the very beginning when you lock up it seriously looks like you're wrestling a midget.

    Its hard when they are short and you are tall and lanky. Plus his grip strength is nuts.

    He has a great frame for good bjj and wrestling.

    I'm kidding :wiggle: Generally I wouldn't like tying up with people that are shorter and stalky though. I just used outside shots, drags and stuff like that.

    It was hard.

    I feel like everytime I try to shoot from the outside in a gi I get stuffed.

    Guess I should have tried. I didn't expect to out power him in the clinch, but I didn't think I would get thrown around like that.

    I have no idea what it feels like to talk a shot in a gi. Does it restrict movement a lot?

    hey, courtney emailed a youtube link to me just now haha

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJkBY8ys150

    same video probably

    Tim felt pretty strong standing, pushed me around to the wall during the second match =P His escaping/recovery also was pretty impressive, turned our first sidemount into a scramble in like 5 seconds. Sucks that I can't train at baltimore bjj more often =/

    The fact that they can hold on to the gi from standing makes it really hard to take a shot sometimes, almost like you are getting stuffed before you even make the shot. In my opinion its all about getting a few dominant grips you are comfortable and developing really solid set ups from there.

    Its not harder to shoot. Its easier to get stuffed because they can grab it, and from the clinch its just about impossible(except for how Ken did it to me).
