            The tournament was between just a few NY schools where a lot of guys knew each other. As a plus, we all know each other a bit better now. I would say about 25 men and ladies competed in GI and NO-GI and we all had a great time.


            I was so proud of my schoolmates....they all did so good. That guy "jumping mount" and the guy doing that awesome "duck under" takedown are my classmates. My instructor, Danny Suarez, fought as well and we were all very proud of ourselves and how far he has taken us.


            I had one match in GI and one match in NO-GI and lost by one advantage point in both matches. I played a very conservative game because I was nervous and I really needed to open up more......more confidence next time! I am the guy in the black GI in the very last clip.

                    As sappy as it is, it really warms my heart to see people from different MA clubs get together and train. I . . . I have something in my eye, I have to go -

                      Was this your first competition? If it was congratulations on getting in there and mixing it up. I will have my first competition next month if my Sensei thinks I am ready. Good Video and good post.

                        Yes, it was my first tournament and I was real nervous! I went right to half guard and maintained that position throughout my 6 minute match. I went for a choke, tried a reversal, and attemped to sweep but all were misses....in retrospect I should have opened up a bit more and just "went for it" as I was well prepared technically and should have trusted in my abilities. My match was a 0-0 score but I lost to a 3-2 advantage point.....if I had only opened the half guard and pushed hard for a sweep in the closing seconds.......next time.

                          Ahhh, the infamous half guard of yours that you were talking about in previous posts! Yeah, staying in this position in a tournament is not going to get you the win. Open it up my brotha and go for some subs. Personally I give a crap about points in a tournament setting and always go for the subs. Attack attack attack... Good job though and you WILL do better in the future! :5bowtie:

                          p.s. Next time get some friggen video, trust me... ten years from now you'll wish you did!

                              Yes, Red......I have the tournament on video......I was actually videotaping the whole thing and had a friend video my match. You are right, having your matches on tape is nice.

                              Yes, my half guard is sick......only my instructor can seem to pass it......now I am working on sweeps/transitions from there and I am doing well. For a 6'3'' 255 pound guy I play a pretty passive bottom game but you are right though, in tournaments it is better to play a more agressive game and try to stay on top.

                              I wish I knew how to put video tape material onto the computer.....I would link my match.....it was pretty exciting, the place was cheering.
