Today was my first BJJ tourny. I tapped to an armbar with about 45 seconds left in my match. Here's the vid, let's break it down. I'm in the blue. *edit* if you don't want to hear my brother's fiance freak out (this was her first time seeing BJJ) watch it with the sound off lol
So a few things:
1) I was so fucking gassed by the time I got caught in the last armbar. I need to do something about that.
2) My guard passing still stinks. The opening was there and I just didn't execute. I need to train long enough that doing technique is my instinct, and not something I have to think about.
3) Can someone explain how he got 2 points when he very briefly got my back? I thought you had to hold it for 3-4 seconds. Was it because he got the hooks in?
Overall I am proud of myself for putting up a solid fight, but disappointed in my results. I obviously need to work on getting a flow to my game, and nail down the technique so I don't have to think and I need to work on my cardio like it's my job.
What else do you see BE? What did I do wrong? What did I do right? Let's make my game stronger BE. You guys are the best MMA community on the net imo, so thanks in advance for any insight.
