    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    May 6th hangover special: No gi Harai goshi and deep half in competition.

    After some major drinking this last Cinco De Mayo I decided to take this last minute match the next day. Could not get my game going but I got off a good reaping hip throw and then got myself swept. Went to deep half where I played a conservative game to see if we could get to the points round. Neither of us scored so we went to sudden death. (First person to land on their back, hip, or butt loses; so no sacrifice throws.)



    For the record this is my first grappling tournament in a decade.

    So in other words unlike Nick Diaz you showed up to compete.

    Thanks Omega I learned something today. I didnt know anything about the Gokor Hayastan style tourney's and went to research the ruleset.(I hadn't heard of the suddeen death round by take down.) Do you like the ruleset or do you prefer more of a NAGA/ GQ style rule set of points through-out?

    Gokor's rules are great because they're high paced. (Not good for this old man who was out of shape). Like all martial arts it's just whatever the rules dictate. The only ruleset that chaps my hide are the IBJJF rules.

    Maybe I should have put a follow up question in there too. Does the Gokor rule set play well into your game or would you prefer a 10 minute round for BB's like Naga? I guess what Im asking is do you employ a dynamic game or more of a grinder game (slow starter.) I ask because well like you joked not good for old men..(I do masters division at NAGA) im not trying to hang with 20 somethings damnit.

    Always pictured you as one of those real dynamic guys that explodes on people, so obviously in my head the Gokor rule set the second I read it was like WOW thats fast paced and no way would I personally want to go to the 3rd round...(My sprawl is ****.) And I will roll with a single leg attempt to prevent the points in NAGA (I've even followed through the take down and ended in mount)

    This points to a flaw in the IBJJF ruleset i've always disliked: If you throw someone into side control, you only get two points. I'd prefer we do away with scoring for passing at all (besides advantages) and instead just reward the three points for achieving side control, which would have put omega ahead by five.

    I actually agree with you. Passing points are dumb and they create some weird incentives. That's heresy to most BJJ guys, though.

    I liked the harai. That's just the position for it in no gi.

    Normally I am, but this day I was lethargic due to the quart of Vodka I consumed the previous night. I had not intended on competing at all but I said what the heck. It was fun. As you can see I still had a blast.

    This is sort of why I asked if Omega had a ruleset preference. Under NAGA no gi I scored it 4 for Omega 2 for opponent, after 5 minutes........O- 2 for throw, 2 for side control ....opponent 2 for sweep.
