Joslin's Results

For all the people who were wondering (okay, both of the people wondering) I didn't do so well at the tournament. I was definitely out of my league, but it was still a great experience and lots of fun. I lost my gi match by armbar in about 90 seconds without scoring a single point and was rather disappointed with myself. I didn't even have a chance to get tired!

Knowing then that I was not likely to win any matches I went into my no-gi fight determined to at least be the aggressor and score some points before I was defeated and that's what I did. I went all out right from the word "go" and took the fight to my opponent. I scored the first points with a take down, but couldn't break past his guard and ended up submitting to another armbar. After the fight my opponent said "good fight, I was totally gassed" which felt good because that means he had a hard time beating me, even if it didn't last the full 5 mins.

I don't have any pictures from the day because we only had a video camera. My brother has the tape and if he ever figures out how to digitized it I'll post what I can. The first fight wasn't so good so I might just post the second. Either way, the video will be depressingly short.

  2. Hey Tim, congrats on your first tournament. I would imagine that its pretty tough trying to train to go against all those styles of fighting. Get that video up.
