    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Sambosteve's footage and pics

    here you go :)

    What I could whip up. My competition days are long gone with the exception of my league match last year. Most of my old stuff is on VHS or simply pics. I managed to dig up some old pics and footage from days past though :)

    Most of my recent years have been focused on coaching...

    enjoy!

    Long way is right...LOL.

    I realized the year is wrong in that vid as well. That freestyle fighting event was 1996, not 1997. I wil I had some old pics of me as a kid doing shotokan...could not find any. I wish I could have found some vids of the old TKD and kung fu days...LOL. But, back then I had no means or inclination to record anything. I actually have footage somewhere of me in the very first grappler's quest...bad quality, but it is in storage somewhere.

    Did he tap to that kneebar?
    Also, would you mind starting a thread in DHS tlaking about different postures while working takedowns?

    Judo guys seem to advocate a much more upright stance, whereas wrestling seems to favor a more bent stance. Given this vid and your bent stance and judo's influence on sambo it seems like you'd have some useful insight.

    I ended up transitioning that kneebar to a knee crush, but time ran out before I could finish. We ended up going 10 minutes with no sub he beat me with points from a sweet takedown he scored on me. Otherwise, it was back and forth for 10 minutes.

    Here is a pick of the kneecrush attempt...




    Sure, I will comment on stand up position. I tend to switch from hunched to upright depending on what the other guy does. But I prefer upright.

    Thanks. But, just to clarify it was a world tournament here in the states. It was not the "worlds". But, still there were about 16 countries competing that year. I had 4 fights that weeked. 3 were US nationals, and one was a Brizillian. I went 2-2. It was a good tiring weekend.
