Guys, tell me your opinion on this! BJJ is about (mainly) the phisically disadvantaged guy against the phisically advantaged guy. The first one uses leverage and timing to make the second use more energy and hopefully they will become "equal". At least that's Helio's point of view. Now, I competed just one time when I was a white belt. First, in my weight category then in the open one. Both guys were phisically stronger than me. How can I overcome that difference in only 5 minutes when we are supposed to be at the same technical level (white belts)? Even in your own weight category, you'll face guys that are stronger or faster than you. So why do you give me just 5 min. to prove my technique aginst these guys? We are at the same level, but I want to prove that I'm a little more technical than him (at the same level - in this case white belt - technical differences are not huge). Let's say he takes me down and lays there 4 min, 30 sec or worst I play open guard from beginning, he just tries to pass my guard and finally wins by an advantage... Is this OK? P.S. - you can blame it on my 2 losses, BTW.
