That seems like one of the most condescending and sarcastic congratulation posts I’ve ever seen, but I know you’re on the spectrum and don’t really give a single fuck about much, so cheers mate.
:lol:

I wondered about that..... but we've been hanging out at this place for years and years, I know you're a busy guy who isn't necessarily an incredible natural athlete, and you've been steadily plugging away at this for awhile now. Tapping a blue belt at the end of a sequence doesn't just happen - you have worked hard for that, and I am happy that you have reached the level where putting together four or five moves with enough competence to ensnare and then choke out a blue belt. Congratulations, sincerely. That's something to carry around with you, for sure. :thumbsup

I tapped a decent blue belt yesterday in a strangely clean sequence of events.

We started on the feet, I had a collar tie and when he grabbed my other wrist I used it to open a gap and did a duck-under to back control, and I ended up with one of his arms trapped inside the gable grip. I picked him up and dropped him to the floor, took his back, and then we fought hands for a minute or so while he tried to get his back to the mat before I slipped an RNC on and squeezed.

For the first time ever I actually managed to string 3-4 decent things together for a sub. It probably still looked sloppy as fuck, but it worked and the lad is around my weight and a lot better than me. I was proper happy with that one.
Dude that's fucking AMAZING. Good shit. After you able to see the series of events pretty clearly as you look back at it? By that I mean, are you able to recognize the small details you acted on in the moment, as you remember it

Yeah, cheers mate, it felt like a pretty big achievement. I’ve tapped blue belts (a woman and a 16 year old lad though, so they were the probably the whitest blue belts you’ll find) before in the gi but I’m still fairly new to all this no-gi stuff. The same lad has literally submitted me 1-3 times in every BJJ session for the past 6 months, too. Maybe he was just having a bad night.

Yeah at the moment I remember it all fairly clearly. He almost span out of the duck under, and a couple of trips failed before I picked him up and dropped him to get him down, then he escaped a hook that I managed to regain while I was trying to keep him from getting his back to the mat. It was a definitely struggle for the whole roll.

That's great. That's a really good sign for you though. Do you think the trips were a mistake, or you you think that that's something you need to work?

I’m just crap at takedowns, mate. I had a gable grip with one of his arms stuck inside so it would have been very hard for him to stay upright and my two trips still failed :lol:

The pick up and drop worked first time though, so I’ll go straight to that next time I get that position.

Would love for Judo to dial the clock on some of the rules back a bit.

Yeah, there’s almost nothing more fucking beautiful than watching a perfectly timed throw slapping a black belt flat on his back.

I went to Judo a few years back for 6 months or so, and the bloke was telling us that they had to ban any touching of the legs from the standing position because they were getting wrestlers and rugby players turning up to competitions with very little skill and doing well, because of the ippon rule (i.e. they’d just double leg every cunt and win with strength). I dunno how true that is, but it’s a shame they didn’t work around it in a more practical way.

The top level judoka are some serious athletes.

Stand and fight with fists like honourable men. If some BJJ guy tries to take me down and put me in full mount then as far as I'm concerned he wants it no holds barred, all bets are off and I'm gonna start taking chunks out of any available body part.

You want to start biting someone who is on top of you and completely controlling you? Quick way yo get your skull imprinted into the pavement and probably teabagged when you are choked unconscious.

You wouldn't be biting shit under fill mount but even if you did, you think they just stand up and walk away?

Here's a tip I really hope you take seriously, if this ever happens, take your beating like a man. Do not lower the tone of the fight, it's retarded. All that happens is the guy who is playing with you like a child is now going to be more inclined to stamp all over your head or snap your arm.

Given any thought to where you are going to get the gun or how long into your life sentance in jail it would take you to realize you just wasted your entire life on something not worth it?

Gun from the shop and I'll never lose the long game to someone. I never start fights on a matter of principal but if someone else wants to I'll escalate it until they admit defeat or one of us is dead.
