Hey everyone, A few weeks ago I placed third in my first submission grappling tournament. Being a wrestler, I won my first few matches by taking kids down controlling them from the top (except for one match where I armbarred a kid from mount). If I started to lose good position and I knew they were going to slip into full guard I'd stand up and let the kid get up so I could take him down again. I noticed that because of this I got alot of dirty looks and even heard someone say "its stupid. hes just a wrestler." A buddy of mine used the same strategy and won his division because of it but got the same reactions from everyone. I was wondering what everyone here thought. Is it "cheap" to take kids down and let them up and do it again? Is it frowned upon when wrestlers enter these tournaments? Because to me winning was all that mattered, not working on my guard game during a competition. Thanks for the input.
