    either way dude, you get the experience. the best thing is that you aren't walking around thinking your a super bad ass.

    - thats what is wrong with all the arts that don't really compete competitivley, they get a false ego.

    I have a video of both my gi losses and didn't make it today to do no-gi which I'm better at.

    it was a good experience and I will do it again in the near future.

    will post the youtubes as soon as they are both up.

    the new digit cam that I get should have some decent video capture abilities that I will have for the Nov 4 tourney. In your vid Nobones, two blue gis in the back, the one sitting on the floor, is the girl I fought. It is too bad that more schools didn't show up. You were fighting another from our Relson San Antonio school? Looks like it. Or Smithville. Anyways. Yeah the schedule was messed up due to the folks running the entire festival. We actually started at 10/11 compared to what the AMF website said, which was 1:00-4. Vandry's school guys (Zapruder) showed up around then to find that we were in the finals for most of the matches.

    No gi today had little turn out. It was basically a inter-association match. Only one other person from another school (Vandry's) showed up. It ended up in one big bracket. I fought 3 matches with the boys.

    well I don't feel so bad for not being able to make it to the no-gi then. Yeah the first guy I fought was from relson's SA school, and tho he'd only been training GJJ with a gi for a month he's been grappling for multiple years and has had some MMA/Pancrase fights, so I don't feel too bad cuz he couldn't sub me.

    second fight, well that's my fault for not training gi chokes enough.

    I had a great time and look forward to a bigger tournament with more diverse opponents instead of all of us being from relson's schools :laughing6

    the first guy you fought had really bad posture throughout the match. so by the comments in the video I conclude that you prefer no gi?
    you think the outcome of the grappling matches would be different if it went no gi? (win/lose)

    Gi chokes are very important. If I didn't train my squenque so rigorously I wouldn't have been able to lay down that looping choke so fast.

    my movement no gi is much better and my sub setups work a lot more often. I have only been training gi with any dedication for 3 months or so. would it have gone any different? first match maybe, second match definately. I'm not making myself out to be any kind of expert though, I fully acknowledge the fact that I suck, and am reminded of this every class when pretty much everyone at my academy stomps on me. but that's ok, that is the only way to get better. I sure don't get much better grappling scrubs.

    I honestly think with another minute in the first match I could have at least evened out the score, I was setting up a position I'm really good in that I can usually choke someone out or take the back from half guard when time ran out.

    honestly it felt great. I had an awesome time and really am looking forward to doing better in the future.

    evie your match was really nice, you finished that chick as handily as my second opponent finished me. probably with the same move.
