    Cualltaigh's comp thread

    AFBJJ Australian Champions Cup 2012

    Although this is my second grappling tournament, it's my first pure BJJ tournament (having now trained BJJ for four months after 3 years of JJJ). And what better way to start than with a wild card entry into the nationals.

    Unfortunately didn't get any video this time, will endeavour to get some in the next one.

    Received a default bronze in the nogi due to coming third out of three (there were a few late withdrawals/scratchings).

    There were 9 in the gi bracket, my opponent in this first match went on to get a bronze in the open weight gi later that day.









    Second match was against the eventual gold medallist. This shot is right before I gave up an easy armbar. Still a bit annoyed with myself on that one but something to drive some improvement ahead of future comps.



    Dum spiro, spero.
    Tada gan iarracht.

    You are obviously much more than an 'Ego Warrior'. Good work.

    Haha, cheers! I wanted to start a thread in it from pretty much since I joined, having read through quite a few threads in it at the beginning.

    assuming you mean the vid in post #2, but no he just jumped guard. Something JJJ had left me wholly unprepared for.

    2013 QLD AFBJJ State Championships April 27

    So, got knocked out of the first round at the weekend. Was up 7-0 by about the halfway mark when I ditched the (until then winning) gameplan and went sub-hunting. Yep.

    Also, the first minute or so is missing from the video as my support crew were busy taking photos. To fill in the gap, about 30 secs of grip fighting (including his attempt at an osoto-gari which I defended) until he pulled guard, I tried to pass it on the way down (nearly did) but he recovered guard and we went out of bounds. Got reset in the middle and I was passing his guard which is where to vid kicks in:

    (n.b. apologies for crappy soudtrack as did this with youtube video edit. Also for the longshot, it is in HD if you need to zoom in)



    Things to work on:
    1. Sticking to the gameplan (numbnuts!)
    2. retaining and attacking from guard
    3. Triangle escapes
    4. Armbar escapes (without ending up in a triangle)
    5. Relaxing and not rushing the gameplan
    6. STICKING TO THE FUCKING GAMEPLAN!

    As always, tips, comments, suggestions and ridicule more than welcome.
    Dum spiro, spero.

    South East Qld BJJ Comp

    So, here is my first foray into the blue belt division at the South East Queensland BJJ Championship on the 16th of Feb. Was quite scrappy and as always I have a lot to work on from it but I did better than I was expecting so was happy with that (and the silver).

    Semi-Final:
