Sweeping game vs sub game
I'm an Ultra HW in BJJ and my bottom game mostly revolves around sweeps.
I feel a bit embarrassed by the fact that only white belts fall for my subs on a consistent basis but on the other hand my sweeps are pretty handy even vs higher ranked guys.
But I'm a short and eh, "stout" guy and most subs involving the use of my legs are too slow when I apply them opening me up for the pass.
I get the occasional omoplata but in 9 out of 10 instances I get the sweep instead of the tap.
I've had pretty good results at my weight in competitions winning several regional tourneys but I was just wondering if this was an issue for other big guys or even just "stout" guys for their weight?
From what I've seen in most competitions only the long-limbed ultra HW's are sub-savvy from their backs while the rest usually rely on winning the top position and then work for the tap.
Am I correct in this observation?
If correct is this the same for other grappling sports such as sambo, judo, etc?
