    Nice defense. You hung in there and did well for just a couple months of training!

    I competed this past weekend too (3rd tourney) and took second. I lost but still feels good to work towards a goal.

    Keep training!

    For your gi game you should look up some judo throws and grip breaking methods ,

    It can be very surprsing when you know some throws and gripping and the difference it makes against bjj guys .

    Just as a guy that does judo watching your video some of the positions he had you in while standing could have been sweeped really easily and would have easily put you in great position on the ground ,


    on the no gi video you have perfect chance for a wizzer/uchi mata when you had him in the head lock .

    you did really good man i cant wait to start bjj in the summer .

    try keeping your back straight some time standing after you leanr some judo throws it messes with the common bjj guy and sets up alot of throws you can do .

    good guy to look up is dave caramillio he is a bjj black belt under carlson gracie i think and did judo since he was like 7 he has the most aggressive form of judo/jiu jitsu combining both that if you watch some of his you tube stuff will impress you he blends them perfectly together .

    that and work on your grip fighting the best thing to learn as a bjj guy and judo guy .

    I know you have only done bjj for a couple months but its a good habit to get into looking up judo stuff you want to hang in gi comps
