Match 2 comments:
1.) Learn how to extract your leg from half guard. (hint: control upper body first, if leg is wrapped above your knee, lift your butt and get it to below your knee (you have to have upper body control of uke!), then you can turn your trapped knee towards the mat and pull it out and help with the other leg if need be...there are several ways, ask your coach).
2.) Stop bending over and stiff arming ! Ever !
3.) Again no gripping strategy, even a basic one. If you have one it doesn't survive contact with your opponent.
4.) If he gets sleeve control, control the space between you, get your posture, and then cut your controlled sleeve...at least keep it on your side of the space...don't fight lefty, you are a righty, and if you do go lefty, you still need to get your sleeve on your side of the mutual space and get a decent lapel grip...not that I recommend it.
5.) Pet peeve, but don't turn your fucking back on your opponent when getting up from the ground, especially before mate' is called. If mate' is called, what's the hurry to get up and rush back to your spot?
Hell, I used to get up slowly as if I were tired to fool the guy into thinking he had some sort of advantage, LOL !
In the match you won, the guy was a lot more noobish looking than you, good job, but still...You went in sideways for an Ouchi Gari it looks like...
Falling for Judo since 1980

WTF is it with you and Osoto Gari on bigger guys who actually maintain decent posture and grip? Osoto as a desperation throw is usually not a good idea, especially when you are bent over and have a shitty grip.
It looked like you had got some decent coaching to fight the guy, but weren't able implement it for long.
I heard someone yelling back up back up...that's not something I usually reccomend, as it is an invitation to get thrown.
Big fuckers are tough, you have a much smaller margin for error due to the strength difference. Add in that that guy has some skill and basics solid, even tougher.
So, overall, work on your gripping, posture, and movement. Use situational drills to get used to working our way out of a bad position, but especially work on basic grip sequence(s), and maintaining the migi shizentai posture.
OK, time to go to Judo !
Good luck, Karl !
