    What subbed you in the last match. Looked like maybe a no-gi ezekiel choke with the fist.
    Thanks dude. And yes you're very right, no-gi ezekiel.

    Sebastien is a great guy but he keeps turning up and murdering me in competition!

    Alternate angle for match 1, you can see some of the techniques, especially the triangle set up, a lot better.

    Dublin BJJ Open 2008

    Blue Belt, u76kg

    Match 1:

    No video - we grip fought, i got an underhook and sat down into a butterfly sweep. Landed in side, started thinking about a kimura or transitioning to mount when my opponent got to his knees - I briefly sprawled to keep him there then took his back. Moved from hooks to body triangle then back, flattened him out and got the RNC.



    Match 2:

    Blue Belt Absolute

    Great second match Moose.

    Who was the guy you were going against and why was he wearing a white belt. He didn't move like a white belt (hips, point control and hand placement) and actually moved really good for a blue.

    You must have turtled up into a deep collar grip which led to the wicked clock he finished you with, right?

    Regardless, that was a great match to watch. Awesome job.

    Thanks Jack

    GJ - He's a no-gi coach actually, we're not really sure why he hasn't been graded, presumably just no one to do it - I'd judge him at high blue to purple standard myself. Also being too heavy to make the 220lb division doesn't hurt.

    Yeah I think that was it.

    Camo gi guy was just better than you. Didn't see you do anything too wrong, with the exception of conceding top to him once, pulling guard during a scramble. By that point it had already been established that his top game was good, so why let him have it? Then again, that's easier said than done.

    I will say one other thing, don't do this:


    I see people do this all the time and it is wrong. The sole of your foot should be against your leg or not touching. Just sitting there with your ankle resting against your knee it is easy for your opponent to simply grab your toes/foot and push it down to the mat, taking your hips with it. Hell, they can just push on your knee and drive your hips down.

    Then again, few people outside of my school seem to notice this and actually do it but hey better to do it right than hope it won't matter.

    I'll try and watch the other match later.
