So much for my "advantage"
Ive been training BJJ for a year and a half and not once have we done live throws. Weve done a some compliant drilling, but Since Ive been going Ive never started rolling from standing. So I told my proffessor that I wanted to compete at Nationals this year and today when I stepped on the mat, surprise surprise, after showing only one technique Proffessor said pair up and work throws for the rest of the class switching partners every five minutes, AND NO PULLING GUARD.
Heres the kicker, Ive been secretly training Judo for 4 months, which makes me still terrible of course, but going against a lot of people who dont do Randori twice a week like I do I figure its going to be easy day. So about four double leg take downs, two fire man carries, and one really surprising Ippon Seoi Nage later, I realised that I pretty much blow at stand up. Now I did get two sacrifice throws, an Uchi Gari's and one half assed seoi nage myself, but it was hardly the blowout that I was expecting.
I wanna hear some stories of confidence (arrogance?) in training that quickly got Seoi Nage'd back to reality either on the mat or in TEH STREETs.
