    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    it all depends on how much newaza you do. You'd be at an advantage in the takedown department for sure. You just better train a good amount of submissions and ground work to have a chance of finishing a match though.

    Thats what i was thinking, cause a takedown is worth 2 points, so id be ahead already, i would just have to work on my submissions a little more.

    NAGA is heavily focused on newaza, so if you aren't well versed in submissions, you'll be at a disadvantage. You get 2pts for a takedown, but you get more for positional dominance and submission attempts.

    I went on saturday. I placed 4th in my no-gi division (3 out of 5, there were over 30 guys in my division), and went 1 and 1 in gi. All my wins were subs, but a lot of the matches went to points.

    It was a ton of fun. I'd definitely do it again, but I need to get my cardio up. 7 matches killed me. Each loss, all by sub, were b/c I was too tired to keep fighting, not because the sub was sunk that deeply. Oh well, live and learn.

    I was there. I broke some asian kids arm really bad on Mat 1 because he refused to tap... I have it on video. I gave him like 30 seconds and I was asking the ref to stop the match before I cranked it.


    I'll post the video for you soon

    Casca Grossa Huh? You wouldn't happen to go to the ones held Mt. Zion High School in GA would you? I've been there twice.

    Holy ****, what a dumbass. It sucks that you had to go that far, but what else could you really do?
