    Did my first gi bjj tournament today. I won my first and third fights with americanas from side control. My second fight I lost on points, 2-0, fucking takedowns. Throughout the second match I was holding my opponent in the lockdown (by eddie bravo). In the process he tweaked his knee and had to pull out. Is this a legit 1st place or is it tainted? If it were an intentional knee tweak I would feel shitty about it, but an incidental injury from rolling? I just don't know.

    If you lost only by 2 points, then went on to submit the other finalist, I'd say that's a legit first place.

    I wouldn't feel bad winning that way. You earned it.

    No way man - get that medal round you neck and bang your missus from behind whilst wearing it and then post some pics - as the OTs gone - we're missing that sort of shit!!!!!

    I too competed in my first Gi BJJ tourney (didnt have time to do No gi) and won the white belt super heavyweight (215-230) division, all 3 matches by submission. 2 keylocks, and one kimura. Only gave up 2 points in all three matches a takedown in my last one, before sweeping him into side control. I got lazy on my feet and gave up the takedown. I am pretty pumped, especially after only training for 2.5 months (lotta wrestling background though)

    Do we not consider the kimura to be a keylock around these parts? :icon_conf

    Our instructor calls the keylock when the arm is towards the head (americana also i think?) thats why i called them different things.

    Yeah Americana, I would imagine. I keep hearing all kinds of crossed terminology - I've heard the americana called a reverse kimura before, even though the kimura is a reverse americana (technically, as per judo)

    They're both keylocks, though. :D

    Wish everyone would just pick a naming system (Japanese ftw) and stick to it.

    Yeah, wrestling has the same problem with certain moves, where ya go, the name can change.
