23/07/08 - Brighton - Me - First Video

In a way i'm slightly embarassed to put this on the blog on the basis that for the vast majority of the fight, i'm stalling.

But by the same token, i'm somewhat proud of this as my first win.

I think i could have done better, i certainly should have killed his inside arm whilst in my side control, but hey, during the adrenalin of the competition, i didn't think.

Oh well, there's always next time.

Coming tomorrow will be the rest of the guys from the gym's fights.

Congrats! You didn't panic when he threatened with the triangle. You had terrific pressure in side control, kept your hips low and defended his reversal well. Nice job.

As you said, you stalled once he threatened to pass your half guard, but overall, for your first match, a win's a win. You have nothing to be embarrassed about.

Cheers Steve.

In my defence, the guy was huge and did do extremley well at keeping my hips planted to the ground, i didn't have much chance to make some space and play for the old school.

Oh well :).
