Last night we had a grappling "tournament" where I do BJJ. There was a judge(instructor) and then you had someone corner you, it was just for fun, but we were supposed to go 100% like in a competition. It was no-gi and I dominated my first match winning 10-0. I took his back, mounted him, had a close armbar, and after the match I wasn't very tired at all. My next match was against a guy I've never seen before and I figured hey it's his first time, etc. We started going and withing 15 seconds BAM! Taken down like nothing and then he passed to half guard and I got back into guard and went for a kimura that was pretty close. Later on he tried to hip bump me to pass my guard but I just grabbed his ankles and he fell back(counted for a sweep). We scrambled and I got back to my feet. I then get taken down AGAIN! I'm sitting there thinking there's no way this is his first time grappling!
I lost 6-3 and I was like WTF! I didn't see that coming at all. I was pretty hard on myself even though it was for fun. Then the guy comes over and explains that he's a collegiate wrestler
! Then all of a sudden I don't feel so bad about loosing since all he did was take me down.
