the first was what I think of a purple belt as moving like. flowing, not married to any position or sub, relaxed, always moving and working and letting the noose cinch slowly until I fucked up and he took advantage. it was great, I love rolling with guys like that. next I rolled with a super strong ex-wrestler who powered through my guard, held me in my most frustrating position (a high & super tight side mount with hooks under the neck and far arm, gable gripping hands) who proceeded to muscle the position (no relaxation at all) while grinding the point his elbow into my neck and fighting the entire time for the americana. I defended well but in the end he had the americana 85% hooked up (I had my elbow inside of his forearm and had it pretty hidden under my body) and he just put on 100% of his muscle to try to get the tap. he got enough pressure on my elbow to make it pop (like, cracking knuckles pop, not bad pop) but he freaked out thinking he actually popped my elbow. it was all good, i wasn't butthurt about the second guy, but the more I think about it the more it makes me think how much I dislike that kind of grappling. we were in the academy, and he was grappling like it was a tournament (cuz the dude doesn't know me) and he did everything through more strength and less technique, and spent at least 5 minutes doing asshole moves and being married to that americana. anyway don't know if there's a point to this beyond just venting, are you guys more like grappler A or grappler B?
