My guns bigger than Scrapper's!

I just got back from a BJJ seminar in Neuried hosted by German Top Team member and Carlos Gracie Jr BB Michael Haselein (applause). It was a two day seminar with Belt testing for white belts today.
I'm sore as hell and the 4hr drive didn't help. Yesterday was great. For 4hrs we went over several takedowns, throws, sweeps, chokes, and counters. I learned some valuable lessons. I got tips to strenghten some of my bread n butter techniques and learned some new tricks to add to the arsenal. The last hour we did RANDORI! I got really enlightened here. I got tapped by a white belt which made me gaurd against getting complacent. We rolled and I tapped him two times in a roll in seconds. So the third time I really wasn't going hard on him and lost my focus. Next thing I know I was in an armbar. It wasn't tight but I knew if he cranked it I was done. So good lesson learned there. Then I rolled with my good friend Heiko, 250lbs of hot German Love! Its aways fun to roll with him. Even though I can beat him in practice he has beaten me twice in competition. Next I tried to add a third notch on the "Tap a BB" scorecard. I learned why I REALLY HATE HASELEIN!!!:mad: First time I almost had him but I couldn't sink the lock in then the bastard escaped we rolled until I started gassing. Then he catch me in a Triangle I couldn't fight out of. THE INSENSITIVE GERMAN PRICK!!!:rolleyes: All and all we had a great time. Afterwards we went to a resteraunt that catered to me, they served roasted forest creatures!!! I had a placted of deer & boar with roasted cranberries, half a pear and pasta. Some of the guys went to a bar but I was tired from the drive and practice and my back was killing me (from lifting this week) so I crashed at one of the purple belts flat.
I didn't get to see all of the testing for the whites because I had a long drive home. (I really shouldn't be complaining because Heiko and Olaf have a 10hr drive back to Berlin) But I plan on making regular trips back down to train. (and to Get Hasalein all I need is more PATCHES!!!)

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.

yep asia--- there is far to much white on show there.
Glad you had a nice weekend, did you get any good throws in at the randori, or was it all newaza?
Also you dont have any tape on you, you will need to tape up at least two fingers and a toe if you are ever to defeat him

We started from our knees but I still got a couple of shoulder throws in to get pple of my back (throwing a big German from you knees with a sore lower back is NOT good for said sore back)
Haselein is also a Judo BB so we did alot of nage waza drill but no standing randori that day.
