    2017 South East Queensland BJJ Championship

    So, for my first attempt at a purple belt comp it didn't go too badly. Four divisions, five close losses and four consolation medals. Most importantly though, i gained in confidence as I was able to hang with the predominantly 3 stripe purple belts.

    Lost the first match by and advantage (0-0 on points, 1-2 advantages). Thought I'd scored a pass off one of my triangle escapes but my idea of three seconds and the refs were different I guess.
    Lost the second match to the same guy by 3 points, after he caught me in a sweep. Also a reminder that I need to work on my fitness as these 7 minute rounds are brutal.
    Lost the next one by 2 points (think it was 4-6, not sure though). Had a Kimura grip locked up from bottom side control but couldn't complete the sweep or the sub to steal the match.
    Lost the next one 0-2 against a guy 2 weight divisions higher than me. I had shot a double but he reversed me on the ground to snake my points.
    Last one I lost by 2 points again. Again, had a deep guillotine from closed guard locked in with a minute to go but just couldn't complete or sweep to jag a win.


      2017 Caloundra BJJ Open

      Finally got some video done at a comp, although it's missing the last 1:40-ish due to phone storage issues.

      So went three divisions on this one ending up with two silver and a bronze. Two good matches in my weight division, going down 7-0 in Gi and 6-4 in no-gi.

      And just for shits and giggles, here's a reminder for my future self to respect the lapel controls of my opponents:

        Didn't get much in the way of footage or images this year, but picked this up. Which is nice.

          Looks 'shopped to me... erm, I mean, Congratulations!
          Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.
