    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    NABJJF Los Angeles International Jiu Jitsu Open - June 28th, 2015

    My second No Gi Tournament.
    Master 1, Purple, Medium Heavy (177 - 190.5lbs) I weighed in at 190.1
    A 4 person bracket, my guy got DQ'd for being over weight - I advance to finals.

    10+ (??) year old bullshido shorts made the uniform guideline, and were worn.


    I have a torn right AC, right labrum, terrible left big toe, and "golfers elbow" on my right, my more or less. I am tapped up like a mummy.

    They restarted it standing after my take down. That made me very happy, guaranteed 2 more points.

    I was 100% confident I was going to win, and didn't fight the sweep after the second take down, wasn't concerned. That was dumb, but it worked out ok.

    He tried to ram us off the mat when I secured the kimura, swept him back in bounds and got a verbal tap.

    My everything really hurt after. When the ref raised my hand you can see me grimace.

    Subfighter NoGi Summer Challenge

    July 25th.
    Advanced division (highest division) - middle weight, 180lbs

    Dropped down from 195, easy cut, no issues.

    This is my 3rd NoGi tournament, and the first with skill divisions, and not going by belt. I entered in the highest div obviously as a 7 month purple belt.


    Match 1. Did enough to win. Secured my take down and he didn't want to open his guard, and didn't feel the need to make him. Perfectly happy to save energy and let him lose the fight through inactivity.







    My second match. Firstly, I am ashamed at how hard I shoved him. I was out of bounds and the ref let him keep coming and choke me half off the mat with the table in my spine. Refs fault, not opponents. I apologized. His shoulder was crackling and popping, you can see his hand touching the back of his head in my Kimura. Tough or dumb, don't know.





    Second half of my third match, finals. He pulled guard. Dude has been a blackbelt for longer then my continuous BJJ training in total. He ran through everyone in a few minutes. I felt like I was instantly going to be swept if I gave him any room so tried to keep it tight and delay the inevitable. There was some chit chat with ref over if he can heel hook me, the answer was no, for this tournament. ends up with a ankle lock that boom pow'd my bad foot.





    Took Second place.
