Who is fighting at the Vic Championships (18th of May)? And more importantly, how do you rate your chances??

eh, nope!
Going to the state championships in Sydney tommorrow though.

Chances ? Pretty poor since I've only been rolling for 2 months and I'll be in the weight division of 79-90kg I think it is since I'm 81kg. Older, heavier & more experienced guys.. As long as I learn something from it I'm happy.

What about you ?

Yeah I was thinking of fighting in the State Champs in Sydney until I found out Machado rules allow leg locks at Blue Belt and above. I've already had one knee reconstruction and don't need another!

I hope to fight in the Victorians during May. (Un)fortunately(?) I may be overseas on business so even if I do make it to the competition, I won't have rolled for approximately 2 weeks which won't do me any good. Other than that I would have rated my chances at a medal as good (hey you've got to be positive!).

Bon, you're about the same weight as me - who knows we might end up on the mat sometime

Leg locks are fine - it's just the heel hook that should be banned IMHO

Dutch, probably... =)

Not for a while though, I'm only a white belt.. Plus, I could do with losing a few kilos to come down a weight class..

I went to Sydney yesterday, and I 'lost'..

I got taken down by the other guy and put in his guard, which I tried to pass but I wasn't doing it properly so it obviously didn't work. He then tried to apply a choke on me, we struggled for a couple of mins with this, I sort of countered and held off, the counter wasn't too effective since I did it too late and my neck was really hurting afterwards, haha. I then tried to pass his guard again, which I again didn't do properly and I eventually ended up getting arm barred, which I tried to resist for a couple of seconds before quickly tapping.

Reason I 'lost' is because I learnt A LOT, probably wouldn't mean too much if I wrote out what I learnt, but even though I was kind of dissapointed to get taken down by a grappler since I have better stand up skills and should have made use of them. I'm one happy chappy now and I can't wait to get back on the mats tommorrow and try some things.. =)

Bad luck Bon - but every fight is a learning experience and if you come out still functioning, you've done well.

My point is ....

1. When someone aplies an armbar or choke you feel discomfort / pain in advance of any damage - so it's easy to tell when to tap.

2. A heel hook i.e. rotationlaa knee lock, is different. Often the 1st pain you will feel is as the joint breaks - and it's a musch nastier injury than popping an elbow - it's the rotation that does the damage. Ankle locks & straight knee-bars are ok.
