    Thats nothing to be ashamed of man. I think he'd put the smack down on 90% of this forum regardless of size. He's been training for a while and he was NAGA's champion at one time.

    I remember when he was a blue belt me and my friend Eitan who trains at Renzo's nicknamed one of his moves because we'd never seen anyone else do it before. Flexible bastard isn't he?

    It's the way you grapple.. you were trying to finish while he was looking to get points.. the way you grapple seems like if you dont finish ur opponent than you feel like you lost

    Congrats D-Lau.

    Men's advanced is a tough division, what weight did you wrestle at?

    well i didn't make weight (was going for 139... weighed in at 146...)

    fought first in no-gi beginner: won my first match on points, and lost the 2nd fight (tapped after escaping a bunch of submission attempts.)

    since i didn't place in beginner, i went on to fight in the novice division and was dumb, didn't keep my head up and got caught in a guillotine right off the bat. oh well.

    all in all i was very pleased with how i did, considering that my ground game is not very good, and that it was my first grappling tournament.
