And I learnt that straight ankle locks are legal in white belt competition and by saying in an incredulous manner the word "****", means a verbal tap out. Also learned that in the future, provided I don't have an MMA fight coming up, I will focus my time on BJJ, considering I have only done two hours a week dedicated to BJJ in the past two months (the rest devoted to MMA). I will enter the no gi division as well. Although I lost, I'm happy with my showing, my cardio was gold, my opponent later told me I was fucking strong on top and if I had known the straight ankle locks were allowed (having previously been informed that NO leg locks at all were allowed) I would not have left my leg where it was. All good. Dude that beat me went on to win gold in gi and no gi. Found out today that he has been winning gold across the country in the white belt division, including a World Jiu Jitsu comp (not sure how "world" that is). He flying arm barred his next opponent in the first ten seconds. I'm not accusing anyone of there being any sandbagging, but Fraser Island seems to be a lot smaller lately. Anyway, had a fucking mad time filming everyone and hanging out with the guys from the gym. Will get some footage up soon when (a) I could be fucked and (b) my team mates have been provided with their footage.GET A RED BELT OR DIE TRYIN'.

Good job, battlefields.
One doesn't usually see walls of text bigger than Chuck's.

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.

It was pretty badly organized. We all warmed up in that tiny warm up area, then stood around for fucking ages, tried warming up again, cooled down then suddenly get called... to sit on a basketball court floor to cool down. Especially when it got to the no gi guys, that was messed up.GET A RED BELT OR DIE TRYIN'.

It sounds as though you all got some useful experience despite the organizational problems. Did cualltaigh end up competing, too?

Think I've got some pictures I can put up! Will just try and see how I can link them: ok, that was a pain, on their site they have the URL hidden, had to go all inspector to find it.
Face still really sore on direct knee to face area, bruising has come down nicely, though!
For some reason they haven't uploaded my division Gi podium shot yet...
No Gi podium, 3rd Place, Mr.Miyagi on the right hand side. Gerard Butler in the middle:
They told me my Scramble top wasn't blue and was 'purple', well, I think they are full of ****. Also, forgot I needed to have ranked fight shorts, geez...they love to milk the money on things, hope I don't get promoted too quickly or I'll go broke trying to keep up with competing uniform requirements... :(
Can someone explain the point of ranked rashguards/fight shorts when I'm already competing in the division against other people in that division of skill? Is it so we don't get confused? The ref doesn't get confused as to what match he just called up to the mat? Or so the gods know what they are tunning in for from Valhalla?

Damn. I don't think I ever want to be neck cranked by that guy who placed first.
