Hey, I'm cross-training a lot of stuff, among which BJJ and Judo. I'm not good at BJJ, but enough to give the judo blackstrouble while Newaza. They seem to be looking for subs way less than positioning, and I have the feeling that they're not used to getting subbed while they're pinning the opponent. It's just a different approach, it seems... Anyways I'll play by theirrules, and avoid the temptation of subbing blackbelts, since I don't want to get my face smashed on the floor while standing-up sparring...:icon_conf Is that normal for Newaza ? Or is it just the culture of my judo club ?
