this info will come a bit late for those wanting to compete (sorry i've been in sydney for the past week) but i guess you can still try getting in, or just come and watch...
i should be competing in this, both the BJJ and no gi.
Queensland Submission Grappling
Championship Circuit 2006
As has been evidenced over the last few years of regular competition,
Submission Grappling in Queensland is going from strength to strength. 2006
shall see a further increase in the in the number of major competitions
being held, with now four events being linked together to determine end of
year champions in the internationally recognised divisions for BJJ and
Prizes to be awarded to all the division winners (and place getters) in
both BJJ & Sub Grappling at the final event of the year in October!
Those dates for this years championship circuit are.
1st Round - April 1st
2nd Round - June 10th
3rd Round - August 19th
4th Round - October 28th
Each instalment of the circuit will feature separate Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and
Submission Grappling competitions, entries must be made before the day of
the competition. This is being done to ensure that the event runs as
smoothly as possible, and within time constraints.
Submission Grappling Weight Divisions (as per ADCC Competition)
65.99kg and under, 66-76.99kg, 77-87.99kg, 88-98.99kg, 99kg and over.
BJJ Weight Divisions (as per BJJ World Championship Competition)
54.99kg and under, 55-60.99kg, 61-66.99kg, 67-72.99kg, 73-78.99kg,
79-84.99kg, 85-90.99kg, 91-96.99kg, 97kg and over.
BOTH competitions will also feature novice and intermediate/advanced
sections in each weight class. For those with a BJJ background 'novice'
will effectively be a white belt division, and 'intermediate/advanced' is blue
belt and above. People with experience in other forms of grappling can
decide for themselves which is a more appropriate section to enter (a rough
12-18 months worth of training would be a good figure to use in this regard
if in doubt).
There will also be a Women's Open BJJ comp and Open Sub grappling comp at
each round of the circuit.

hmm dunno if i can get video of the event, but maybe i can get pictures...
Posted On:4/01/2006 9:47pm
well, i came second in the gi and second in the no gi. i actually beat the chap in no gi who beat me in the gi... then in my final i came up against someone else who hadn't participated in the gi and lost... turns out he is an MMA fighter.
i know a few things that i definately have to work on now like my standup. some guys there were doing judo throws all over the place. i got thrown and slammed a bit.
and there are no photos or video because we are all too stupid to remember to bring cameras.
everyone in our club did really well, especially for such a small club. we got a lot of first places.
i have to credit my clubbell(R) training.

can you manage a verbal description?
Posted On:4/02/2006 7:57am
there were over 60 people who competed in total. i can describe for you how i went...
first up was the gi, and my first opponent wasn't too hard. he seemed pretty nervous and i'd say this might have been his first comp. i took him down, got the mount for w hile and eventually armbarred him.
the next one was pretty tough. he had apprently been doing judo cos he was throwing me all over the place. he even slammed me from my guard but didn't get in trouble for it. one time i had locked off a triangle, but we had fallen off the mat so they started us standing again! which he was probably very happy about especially since he was beating me in the stand up. i attempted a couple of armbars but he didn't tap and pulled his arm out. so then there was this time he threw me pretty hard and i did an armbar from the bottom, and when i put it on i made sure it was strong, and his elbow kinda went inside out... i don't know if he is double jointed or just has a high pain threshold, but it looked pretty bad. he tapped. damn, wish i had video of it!!
so i came up against a guy called shane in the final. he had watched my previous bout and decided to avoid my guard at all costs (i know this because i spoke to him afterwards). he took me down and got the top position and just kinda held me there. he was really, really good at holding the top. towards the end he attempted an armbar, and i managed to roll him over and then i was in his guard - and time ran out. he had a lot more points than me and won easily.
then the no gi. my first opponent was shane again! i don't remember much of what happened, but i ended up getting an armbar from the bottom, which i put on really hard and injured his arm. i felt pretty bad about it and apologised a lot... he was walking around with an icepack. i probably didn't need to do it that hard but my previous experiences with him and the thrower made me pretty determined to do it properly. in the end, shane said "i should have tapped sooner".
the next chap i beat with a kimura in about 20 seconds. i'm not sure how good he really was since it was over so quick.
then my 6th and final bout of the day, which was against this guy:
we went to time with 0 points each. i spent a lot of energy attempting a kimura on the bottom which he defended very well. they decided to give us an extra 2 minutes. i had just about blown all my energy, and was feeling tired even before the match had started... we started again and i sloppily dropped a little to grab his leg i think... he immediately slapped on a guillotine. i was already out of breath by the time he put it on and i think nearly lost consciousness. so that was that.
like i said before i got to the finals in both gi and no gi and managed to lose them. though i feel that in both cases i could have won. not to take anything away from the chaps who beat me, it was totally fair, they were very skillful and great opponents. so today i've just been sitting around trying to let my muscles heal...
was there any specific information you wanted roly?

props for making a great showing, although the descriptions of the injuries dont make me so eager to compete again. (inside out elbow joint.... ick)

it didn't seem to bother him at all! i couldn't believe it. he didn't yelp or seem to be in pain afterwards. he also had bandages and **** on his hands... it was a bit scary.
but that only happened cos he didn't tap. the first chap i submitted tapped pretty quickly. he just knew it was on and couldn't escape. this other guy knew it was on and just stayed there. crazy.
btw, after i'd won he came up to me and handed me a clump of my hair and said "here you go mate, i won't be needing it". i should get a haircut...

I wanted to make a showing, but work rostered me on. Would of been my first comp! He he.
Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.
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.

woah woah woah...
this event happened back in 2006, matey. back when i had 3 stripes on my white belt. i now live in sydney.
funnily enough, last weekend i just came second at the 6th Annual Australian Submission Grappling Championships in the blue/purple division. so your post was almost relevant.
