    Did you finish the move? Seems most times I end up with the sweep into side control rather than the actual submission.

    Now hit the go-go

    congrats.

    I've actually never finished it, I just use it to sweep.

    I've hit 3 go-gos.

    ive trained at other places for short periods of time while being under a particular instructor.. if your instructors are cool with that, then good.. theres no problem. but usually when you train at a place they demand some loyalty from you. i mean when you compete, which instructor are you representing, etc?
