If you came out to that, it would've been so awesome. I'd even go as far as to say Genki Sudo-worthy.

congrats, dude! I hope you manage to get a sick judo throw in one of your future matches!

You're on a roll like Bridgestone. Good job brother.

My coach just got the video up on youtube:
YouTube- GPP XIII. Alex "Octopus Prime" Kostrzewa out of Southside Dojo. 2-27-10.
I did my best to make a grand entrance, despite the lack of proper music.
I was informed after the fight that I was unconsciously mimicking my opponent's movements in the staredown (such as at 1:08, when I raise my arms after he raised his), which strikes me as a hilarious way to screw with your opponent's head beforehand, and I plan on consciously doing henceforth. The armbar ended from a weird ass position (I thought it was just a regular facedown armbar when I had it), but I somehow kept it locked up.
If you're wondering what was going on at 3:49, that was me screaming the name of Odin. I'm not sure why it's silent.

do you know what your opponents' training background is?

It's silent because you're super far away from the mic, haha.
The triangle looked super tight, I dunno how necessary it was to change to the armbar. Also, it looked like your opponent was hanging onto that headlock pretty hard, which makes me think he doesn't have much grappling experience.

I concur, it looked like you could of finished with the triangle, easily! It looked quite solid and well laid on.
Congrats! I look forward to seeing more of them.Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.
Miyagi: Feeling correct.
Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.
Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.
