    All in all, what you did on the ground looked solid. The reversal that won you the fight was nice.

    Pulling guard to go for a guillotine may not be the best course of action in a judo match, unless your guard is really really good (which it isn't).

    When you have side mount like you did in the first fight, you might want to sprawl out more and keep your hip in close contact to his hip and as low as you can get it, to prevent him from recovering guard.
    There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

    Yeah, in hindsight my guard/guillotine suggestion probably won't do you well in a Judo comp., sorry about that. Good chance of getting in trouble for a neck cranck there. (But it works great in less restrictive rules if you're comfortable on your back!)

    Richie makes a good point with regards to getting low and controlling the hip to retain the position. You could also switch to kesa which can be a very strong hold down/pin if you do it properly. I've seen newer people tap just from the pressure it puts on their chests. Just be aware of them trying to take your back.

    What about an Uchi Mata counter to the double leg? Which is what we drilled yesterday.

    Definitely possible. He's going forward, which is exactly what you want with Uchi Mata.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
