Hello fellow sherdogging grapplers! I need y'all's advice on what to do when you're grappling against a total a**-hole who does nothing but stall? Let me contextualize this: I'm BJJ / Judo practitioner. I got a pretty technical ground game, but I'm not physically very strong. Lately I'm a little less in shape because I've been working too hard on my PhD thesis. Anyways, I'm staying in a region in France with no BJJ schools, so I've been concentrating in Judo. Once a week they got a class that focuses a bit more on the ground. Most of the guys in the club are in very good physical shape, but just an OK ground game. Occasionally, the instructors ask me to teach the class the ground techniques for the week and people tend to like and respect me allot. Last night I went to the class and I had a couple of ground matches with a real d*ck-head in the club, who thinks that there is no point in even practicing ground-technique. The guy is Judo black belt and much bigger me by the way. So we rolled for a few minutes and I totally owned the SOB. BUT,,, As soon as I got him in an armbar from the guard position, he was able to lift me up of the mat and would call for the match to stop. So I tell him that although its technically true that in a Judo match the ref would stop the match, we tend to relax the rules a bit for practicing. The guy is a total wanker, so he kind of just looked at me like an absolute idiot. To be cool, I respected all the Judo rules and we restarted the match. We continued rolling and to avoid getting picked-up in his guard, I decided to get him from the back. I did. It wasn't hard, but as soon as I got his back, the dude did nothing but ball up and protect his neck. I took me maybe a minute or so to spread him out, and another few seconds to force his hands off his neck. It worked. I started working on a RNC, but I couldn't get my arm underneath his chin. I didn't want to be a complete douche-bag and crush his face or something to get him to react so I kept him in this position until time was called. So I bet you all know where this is going... I met with the guy later in the locker-room and he was basically saying to the other students that ground game is useless because no one actually has the "time" to submit him. That really pissed me off. Specially because I know that if I were not such a "cool" costumer I could have forced his sorry a** to tap. So I'm thinking next week I'm going to teach this dude a lesson. I'm thinking of dirty jiu-jitsuing his a**: Holding his mouth and nose with my hand. Face crush. The old chin-in the eye. Grabbing his legs and doing a calf-crush instead (this is illegal in Judo). Not letting go of the armbar when he picks me up and just keep holding it until the b*tch screams... sh*t like that. So here is my 2 question sherdoggers: - What do you think should to do in this situation? - Does anyone recommend any particular technique to try on a staller? thanks.
