    Haha, Disrespect the legs!

    Nice one, I am sure he felt his arm after that one.

    Was this at the Budokwai?

    Dont really want to sound too critical here but you got lucky in the first fight in the sense that the referee should have called toketa (hold broken) when your oponent got that far out of the competition area (his whole body + one of your legs). On the other hand you resisted the temptation to just go straight for a fake tomoenage and sub everyone.
    A well deserved greenbelt in any case! Sadly there wont be many more of these gradings after the bja starts giving away all coloured belts.

    No - the ref was right. As long as one portion of the body remains in contact with the competition area - even a toe! - then the play continues.

    With contact I mean touching, so if they bridge and your leg lifts off the mat (ie no contact) then it is matte (not toketa).

    All in all, 2 solid wins. The sumi-gaeshi was nice.

    If I may, some comments:

    1. You can improve by being more aggressive and attacking earlier, rather than waiting.
    2. You made a good kouchi-gari attack in the second fight. Do more of this next time! Keep moving around and sweeping at the feet with kouchi's and deashi's.
    3. Commit more when you do decide to go for a tech. Balls to the wall, baby - if you try for a drop-seoi really turn all the way through and DRIVE forward and KEEP driving.

    I can see your BJJ and Judo starting to work together well, you're not just "BJJ'ing" your way through (ie; singles & fake falling-down techs to get to the ground). But .... lose the patched gi, you give away your advantage!! :icon_chee (not that it made a difference in this case - but competition will get tougher)

    Well done and congrats on the green!!

    Nice Jugi Gatame. However it did seem weid that your teammates where going hard on you during grading. Maybe it's just where I'm from but when being graded they try to make me look good.

    That's a different sort of grading.

    This sort of grading is a competition grading ie; batsugan.

    A bunch of people who want to get graded show up for a competition. So you will be fighting a bunch of other orange belts and you need to win "X" number of fights to get your green. If you don't get the required wins - you don't pass. So everyone is fighting their best to win - they are not all from your own club.

    That's what I am assuming these matches are about.

    I was thinking that too and then I realized that those are wrestling rules. I always get the two confused!

    Good matches. I just always find it funny when someone seems like an average player, then BOOM! Match hits the ground and they're now way outta your league. I guess the patch shoulda been the giveaway.

    I think the hunched over stance limits the techniques you can do tbh
