Sorry for the Brag post, but none of my friends do BJJ so telling them just gets me dumb looks of confusion. I'm a 1 stripe white, been rolling about 6 months. First round of open mat I went with a Purple I've never rolled with before. He was about to break my closed guard with his knee on my butt. He was bigger and stronger than me, and a purple, so I knew he was going to get it and I had to do something to avoid giving up the pass. Everything slowed down and clicked and I saw exactly what I needed to do. I opened my guard, switched to my left him, framed on his hips with my right knee/shin, trapped his left tri with an overhook, and executed a totally smooth scissor sweep to mount, didn't have to muscle it at all. Honestly I was shocked when it happened. I'd love to say I was able to finish from there, but he had really good defense and was able to opa his way out about a minute later. Either way it felt awesome, I've been rolling with Blues and Purples as much as possible lately to prepare for a comp in a couple weeks and I've been getting my ass kicked every night. So to actually hit a technique really made me feel good.
