I'm a pretty strong guy for my size, but Monday night, I got completely overpowered. I'm not talking like he was just stronger than me. He was FAR stronger than me. This happens against bigger guys, but this cat was my own size. He's only been training for a a month or so and has no real technique. I found it easy to pass his guard and get dominate position, but he just powered out of nearly every sub I tried. Granted, I'm not Rickson, but I've been training considerably longer than him and I just found it frustrating. He even subbed me once. I don't mind gettng subbed through superior technique, but this guy just put me in some sort of modified gullitine (it wasn't even a real technique I don't think) and crushed my larnyx. Next time I roll with him I suppose I'll try to be faster on my transitions and more conservative in my positions. This did give me an appreciation for how I tend to use my own strength against smaller (and believe me there aren't many) opponents. So that's something I need to work on. I've been aggravated with myself all week over this and I just had to vent.
