The highlight vid just shows that I was outclassed in my grappling by everyone that I rolled with. This video confirmed it. :-)
Thanks for rolling guys. I have to start working on my newaza a lot more.I feel like you eye-bawlin' me, dawg!

That's some awesome feedback, guys. I'm really grateful you have eyes for these things; for instance I couldn't see (or feel) the crossing-the-feet thing I do.

This video is from awhile ago, and Domite has improved a great deal since then, but you can see JP using head movement and cover to protect himself while changing levels to work Domite's body:
YouTube - JP vs Domite
The range thing is hard, and even experienced fighters can be caught out by extreme differences in reach. Randy Couture said after his loss to Brock Lesnar that the bigger man's reach was the decisive factor for which he had not adequately planned.“Most people do not do, but take refuge in theory and talk, thinking that they will become good in this way” -- Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, II.4

I'll have you know that I can't stop watching the damn highlight vid. I've watched the others too, they're great and all, but I think I've watched the highlight like thirty times.What a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable. -Xenophon's Socrates

My lovely ladyfriend was on hand, sans camera mais avec le sketch-book.
She did some gesture drawing of our rolling and hanging out, which I share with you out of pride, meaningless addition to the TD thread, and an attempt to be scholarly regarding artwork.What a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable. -Xenophon's Socrates
