time I pwned: I was working omaplatas only. I got a fellow white belt in an omaplata off of a triangle, omaplata off of an opposite side armbar (both in), did the rubber guard progression to jiu-claw, omaplata off of a half-passed rubber guard, and an omoplata from mount. Not a marceloplata, an actual rolling oma by trapping an arm, letting him bridge me the opposite way, throwing a leg over. The fun thing was that this move seems to semi-frequently end up with them broken down enough to finish the oma. Anyone know if there's a name for this? if not I might be forced to call it the lolmoplata. These were all in one ~4 min roll. I haven't seen him lately, I worry that I discouraged him. =-/
Time I got pwned: rolling with a guy better than me and literally twice my weight. Started in his guard, immediately swept to under mount. Got to half immediately, passed immediately to side, he switches to kesa (oof) starts crushing me and working an arm down for a bent armlock or something. Being a squirmy flexible bastard I throw a leg over his hip despite my lack of oxygen and start taking the back. This prompts him to shift back to side, then immediately to north-south as I start to shrimp. I discover I am being smothered by fat folds. TAP
I was training at a seminar with a guy who was a dan grade, he kept trying to thumb jab me on the arms and ribs to make me move but as I work occasionaly as a pain slut for voyuer sessions in a dungeon and had done one the day before they were not hurting me to any great effect, after about 3 minutes of this he went in the huff and got one of his students to train with me. I know it's not really pwnage but his face was a picture.
You have discovered the true Iron Body training.

Wait. I'm sorry to go this far back in the thread, but how the hell do you tap somebody with a cradle? Were they absurdly inflexible? Or were you compressing the chest enough to make them lose their air?

Before he can turtle, I get one hook in, deep, and twist around to get it all the way across his belly. Seeing the body triangle coming, he grabs my foot and pulls it up, but if there's one thing I have, it's flexibility, and I survive it to get the body triangle. Once it's on he rolls around for about five minutes without moving me. I don't get the RNC (the only submission I knew from there, at the time) because he hand fights too well, but eventually he just taps out due to a combination of fatigue and frustration.
Me pwned: there are so goddamn many stories. I tapped to knee-on-belly once. Before you mock me, the guy had only gotten to side control to begin with because he was too large for me to physically close my guard around him. When he settled his knee on my sternum, I literally could not breathe. I don't mean "I was having trouble breathing," I mean my lungs were wholly nonfunctional. He was a nice guy, though, and looked a little embarrassed when I tapped to it. He's already slimming down from the training.
I have been sneeze boxing for close to a year now, so my MT kicks are getting better. I kicked a kid a few weeks back once in the thigh and he stumbled to throw a punch, stopped, grabbed his leg and yelled tap. All within 30 seconds.
So after thinking I was a bad ass... Last night I get flower swept, and put in a key lock within 15 seconds.... lol He let it off before I could tap and started breakin my face from mount.... lol.... Its called Karma kids :)

Guy had me in a bent arm bar, i told him not to have his face so close to my head because I could hit him in the face with my head.
he said go for it.
I broke his nose.
