I was training at the Tsunami BJJ gym in Torrance. Training consist of spider guard breaks and passes to side control. Also, we worked on the triceps crush and the americana. I got a lot of reps in and got to roll for a couple of rounds.
I was at the Versus Fitness and Martials gym in Montebello. We worked on full guard to spider guard set ups to various spider guard sweeps. I got a lot of reps in that night, but skipped the rolling to stay healthy for competition.
3/14/14 Pan Jiu Jitsu Tournament Results:
I got on site on time. I warmed up a little bit and had to change my uniform before my match. It was not a good morning.
Anyhow, I got a feel for my opponent, I didn't think I would take him down, so I pulled half guard. I got smashed early on and didn't recover from a knee slice pass. My opponent got north south and set up and finished the paper cutter choke on a transition to side control. I was one and done that day.
Up next is the Brea Jiu Jitsu Tournament in April. I would like to thank my family, friends, instructors, training partners, and sponsors for all their help during this training. Despite missing a week of training, I came in healthy to compete and I came out healthy afterwards as well. I'll have to work on more takedowns and sweeps. I'll have to wait until moving to Walnut is over in order to get the time in for training in Judo.
I learned a lot during the training and studying my opponents in this tournament. After the Brea Jiu Jitsu Tournament is Mundials. I'll be dialing in for that.
