its cool that you are doing good but you don't "win" at sparring and you can never really tell how hard the other guy is taking it.
anyways good luck with all this stuff

And I don't want to enter a Muay Thai tournament. I am not a Muay Thai practitioner. I am a Jujutsuka. My mission with my striking abilities is not to stand and bang(although my opponent doesn't know that). It is to get in and get my hands on them. So for me to fight Muay Thai would be pointless, because that would throw me off because I would be trying to stand and bang with someone. Thus changing the whole philosophy of what I do.

Also, do you hard drill your throws at all or is the zombie-walk your major testing ground for throws? And no it's not that I don't get it or 'it looks strange', I don't see it as a useful drill.
You can do useful, compliant drills by someone standing a metre (arms-reach) in front of you and attacking with various energy up to full force and speed. This also teaches you timing, which you will never get from the zombie-drill.
In this video I also show correct way of breakfalling w/ a slap
But like I said, it is probably the product of never having been thrown hard - the kind of throw where you bounce off the mat and the only way to avoid being winded (even then only by a hairs width) is by being spot on with your ukemi.
Dum spiro, spero.
Tada gan iarracht.

It's not an everyday training at the dojo... but it's basically just a typical day at the dojo.
And I never said "I never do my best work"
But most of the time I am working on things. That's what I do at the dojo... try to reach a new level.
And I can assure you although my Ukemi might not be perfect. But I didn't do anything seriously wrong. In fact breakfalls don't even require a slap to be honest. So having my arm parallel with bottom leg... I don't see playing a huge factor. And landing on my lower back? I would say depends on which breakfall you are talking about. Since there's a Back, Side, and etc.
Either way this is a pretty pointless discussion as I have taken heavy falls. Even a standing Kata Guruma and being dropped onto the mat. The biggest part is to not fall like a tree and to train ourselves to keep our head from hitting the ground. And if you don't want to get winded breathe out as you fall.
The biggest issue I ever really ran into when falling was taking a hit on the kidney. Which rarely happens, or getting my balls jarred.

Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

First, Jujutsuka desu, please don't fight. It's not worth it, you won't make money, and you're more likely to be injured and out of training in something you love than come out victorious (and still with no money).
Second, if you won't spar someone at their MMA gym in full prep for a fight to test yourself, you're not ready to fight in MMA. This obviously doesn't mean do this a week before you're first fight, but it should be something you are comfortable doing before you even consider taking a fight!
Third, a BJJ blue belt should be able to pretty much pick you apart on the ground with the examples you provided. You CANNOT give up those sub attempts in an MMA fight like that, or even in a competition. Armbars/Triangles/Omoplatas all just hanging out there waiting to be cranked the **** on. You do not appear to be aware enough on the ground to stay out of those dangerous positions until they've already tried to finish them on you, and you power out of them due to their bad technique.
Please, go an train in an MMA gym that is open to your ideas of incorporating your traditional skillset with a modern MMA at minimum, max...ditch the JJJ integration in MMA until you've trained at an MMA gym to know how to really combine that stuff together without sacrificing a lot.
The guys have been supportive, then turned to teasing, then spurning you out of the decision. Not to mock you, but to protect you.
Please, don't fight! Learn and grow, then fight!Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.
Miyagi: Feeling correct.
Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.
Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

But you are not going to believe us, obviously. No matter how much better trained, more experienced, and more aware we are than you.
Seriously. I've been you. I have seen 100 versions of you. My original prediction stands.
As for your anecdotal sparring session; If you really had no trouble handling a guy with seven fights, as you say, then things look good for you.
Not because it means you are ready, but because the promoter obviously has trouble finding serious competitors. Wherever your amateur scene is, it is obviously starved for quality fighters. This means you have a chance.
Or, more sinister, he is building you up with chumps and bullshit so you won't realize you are being fed to a real competitor.
And finally, I was FAR better at grappling then you are when I first fought. (hell, I was a better grappler in high school than you are now...) I understood the difference between go and no-gi just fine. I was far better at striking, too.
You are not magical or special. Your only hope is that your opponent is as helpless as a bjj white belt with no striking ability. This seems unlikely, but its not impossible.
I really hope you win, because losing sucks. But if you were serious about winning you would be training differently...

And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".
