    Triumph

    Yes indeed, tonight I managed to nail omo-plata on someone against whom I gave up weight, strength AND experience. Bask in my glow ladies and gentleman. I was so thrilled I rolled out and looked at the guy and said, "That was omo-plata." He said, "Awesome." I looked around for recognition and then noticed that EVERYONE HAD GONE TO GET WATER!!! My moment of glory...stolen.

    Then went 1-1 against someone to whom I gave up all three of the above. I managed a triangle choke as he tried to stack and pass guard.

    Finally, countered a rear naked choke, sat out and guillotined. Yes.

    The most interesting thing was an after-class conversation we had about talking down other schools. Universal contempt was the consensus, and the greatest local culprit is a tournament karate school that specializes in 50 student children's classes. One guy complained that he had a brother-in-law that did San Soo and that everytime he saw him he would say something ridiculous like, "I'll poke your eye out." No shit. The funny thing is that none of these guys had anything against other schools. In fact, everybody seemed pretty angry about that same local karate school disparaging a TKD (Yes, TKD) school at a local exhibition/tournament. Consensus on this was if you're going to belittle a school or a fighter, you'd better be prepared for a challenge.

    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the fuck I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

        Nailing an omo-plata is easy when your opponent is a punching bag. I know it, don't even try to deny it.

          nice Wastrel! well done against a more "experinced" opponent <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

          "Consensus on this was if you're going to belittle a school or a fighter, you'd better be prepared for a challenge." Certainly. But you shouldn't wait for the challenge you should go there and just do it IMO.

            Hmmm, I am two minded about those TKD/Karate black belt factory for kids. From martial arts point of view, it is complete fraud but for kids, the feeling of achivement they get from blackbelt could last life time. I just wish that there is law somewhere which say you can only give tag instead of belt to kids.

            If instructor is a good teacher to kids and being honest about what he teach to kids and parents that what he teach is sports/excercise, I see no reason to humiliate him/her. However, if he is telling his teenage students that they are learing deadly art of selfdefence, which if tested get the practioner killed, someone should expose him as fraud.

              Blade, why don't you go challenge your old mcdojo KJJ school at the gathering of the masters? While you're there you can challenge a non bjj-practicing san soo master as well :) How's that shoot coming along? <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

                Danny,
                You got me. When I told him to testify to the omo-plata, he remained strangely silent, because he was of course, a heavy leather bag lying on the ground. Whoopsie.

                  Congrats dude! I have yet to even fathom Omo plata, let alone do it! Can you tell me step by step how you locked it? Or is that too much?

                      Sweet shoulder lock. You can use arms or legs to do it. Very nice stuff.

                          Anthony A,
                          I waited for my opponent to attempt a basic leg-push guard pass on my right leg, swiveled back square and grabbed his right arm, then holding the back of his hand about three inches below my armpit I held my upperleft arm across the back of his forearm and bent my forearm across the back of his elbow and then grabbed it with my right hand (this can be a submission by itself sometimes). In this position I had him preoccupied with his arm while I raised my right foot onto his hip and pushed off while I let his arm slip until it was in position over the top of my thigh, and then completed the roll over. Does that make sense?

                            Sweet, so he rolled into the omo plata. That is cool. I gotta practice that move so I can use it. Thanks!

                              hammerlock with the leg. beautiful. ive never seen that particular entry before. thats a good description wastrel, congrats. that technique is one the few holds that is truly near inescapable if properly locked. it also allows abundant striking opportunity. you can also achieve a side elbow press and then step over the leg and drop the underside of the upper thigh on the arm above the elbow while manipulating the wrist(apply side wrist lock pressure to cause them to yield the elbow). careful with the thigh drop, the arm can get heavily damaged. the entire move is meant to be "sitting sacrifice" or full body drop to the floor. i dont think that you can do this in practice unless, it would be horrific. its kinda like an aikido ude-osae to get him stretched out and level and use the hulk hogan leg drop on his arm and then tuck your leg in and twist his wrist so that his head and the point of his shoulder are driven into ground with your weight adding to the throw. you can break his wrist with a chicken beak when you hit the ground. use your chest to do this. voila, kuntoa throw.

                              p.s. there is no breakfall for this. if you do it for real you are probably going to jail.

                              peace.
