lol, i know this hardly deserves a topic but i thought i would share.
i have been doing bjj at gracie sydney for about 6mnths now (mind you i just came back from 6 week holiday in japan asahi + sake= out of shape)
anyway i was rolling with a purple belt this morning and basically it was at the start of the round and we were in a bit of a scramble whilst he was in top trying to pass my guard and somehow i kind of half swept him and ended up getting a deep reverse triangle...squeezed that thing as hard as i could for about 10 seconds and finally he tapped !
he congratulated me then commenced to sub me 2 times in the same round ! i was just happy to get the sub and was pretty pleased with myself
just keen to know of your guys getting your first big submission whilst being a white belt against someone with some skill wether it be a white belt or black belt ??? keen to hear some stories and i def wont forget this one.
comp coming up on sep 22 aswell...pumped !
That's awesome! In a life or death fight you would have won.
I remember when first subbed my instructor. I forget what belt he was at the time. But I think we started with one hook in. He figured I was going to work for a choke and the min I went that way he defened the choke but I grabbed onto an arm and took a belly down armbar. Its one of those moment everything clicked just right. I think I Posted about it as well. Congrats !
