Disregard the goofy guard pulls... I was just jacking around for no good reason. Under the American rules, there's a lot more opportunity for guard play.

My first sumo tournament. My tachiai REALLY sucks here, but I honestly didn't know how to handle a 3rd degree sumo BB who outweighed me by 200lbs, LOL.

I'm just in the first 90 seconds or so. The second match, which is hard to see, won me the state champs.

The first match has some awkward ground transitions because the dude was soooo stiff, but that's actually what allowed me to hit the ura nage, eventually.

I tried, in this particular tournament, to play the points game, which is something that I don't do very well, or very often. I ended up getting second.

You can see me going for takedown and pass points, and then stalling at the end to make sure I win. I think the ref missed one takedown and one pass, though. Not the most exciting thing.

Video of a sumi gaeshi from a Russian-style sleeve-and-far-shoulder grip that I hit yesterday at a BJJ comp. The guy ended up taking my back and winning on points, which means I just need to work on the BJJ rules some more.

Scary thing is, I recognized both refs in the video of the first match, the one on the mat and the one standing in front of the camera...

Nice work, thanks for sharing.

Try more tsuki/slapping next time to piss him off, then dodge when he charges you.

I got armbarred in pretty short order, which I think I could have avoided, but was waiting for the ref to stand us back up.

We started off working for grips, and I felt great... He didn't feel particularly strong, or fast, or crafty. He left his lead leg wide open for a pick/tap or kata guruma, so I shot in for it, and he spun around to avoid falling. With him out-of-place, I bellied out, and was waiting for the ref to stand it up. He then began to dig for an arm, which took him some time, and peeled me over for an armbar. I defended it for quite some time... At least 30 seconds, if not longer, and he was not able to extend the arm. I continued to wait, as I did not feel in trouble, and I figured the newaza clock had to be getting close. He eventually extended the arm and got the tap.

I should have just actively defended the lock, but it is usually the case that it would have been stopped when I bellied out, or after he was not able to extend the arm for so long. Next time I know not to rely on the ref. Lesson learned.

Yeah, I tell my students that all the time, don't depend on the ref. It works some of the time, but when it doesn't, it sucks. Probably a higher percentage move in Judo than other grappling arts, though I still discourage it.

They weigh you in right before you compete, so it wouldn't be smart to cut weight. I don't cut weight at all anymore, ever, unless it's an overseas comp.

My second match of the day at the Mr. Olympia this past weekend. I weighed in at 74kg, but wrestled up to 82kg and 90kg. This is the 90kg guy.

I'm a little slow from having such a strenuous first match, but the end result was good.
