Triangle is a solid technique to learn :) it can be used from, guard, mount, side control bottom, back control... also, I love to transition to armbar or omoplata if opponent refuses to tap from triangle :) it is a great tool for control :)

Get a juicer... I hate vegies too but the juicing makes it palatable.

Got my first bruised rib, didnt hurt so much last night when it happened but when i got up this morning i could damn sure feel it, any pressure pressed on that rib hurts bad. Im gonna try to roll tonight but i may have to sit out if it hurts too bad, we have a sub only tournament coming up in a few weeks that i cant afford to be injured for.

You got any ear stuff yet? I remember a mate of mine started BJJ and said his ears were the sorest thing in his life to that point.

 

I've only rolled a few times, but I love the Omoplata / Gogoplata leg triangle on the arm. I think I managed to hit a Gogo once (not like it's impressed when I watch MMA and the other person never has, and neither of us do BJJ. I can't hit a triangle for shit because my legs are really big (fat) which provides way too much room for movement when I lock it in. I also found it ridiculously hard to finish armbars. RNC is hard to lock in without strikes too. I never think of things like Americana or Kimura either. I did once finish with the Frank Mir / Jon Jones armlock though which was cool.

Havent been to many BJJ classes, but one time i did i got a strange submission. Went for a gogoplata but my legs being too fat and me not being the most flexible person my knee ended up on the other dudes face (with me underneath him) so i pulled the back of his head into my knee lol. Is that a thing? 

 

I plan on getting back into it sooner or later once i get a bit fitter :D

 

 

Hope your rib isnt too badly hurt skull. Go and win that tourny (use my facecrusher to win)

That sounds like a MORE flexible version of the gogoplata lol. Usually you pull the back of their head into your shin, so if you had your leg the whole way across with the knee that seems like more flexibility haha.

 

Would just be a harder finish since their head can slip off the knee to either side where as the shin will be flat.

 

That's one thing, my legs are pretty ridiculously big. Like I'm hardly rocking a 6 pack up top but I've get the legs of like an 18 stone guy lol. I'd pretty much have the size of legs that Hunt has sans pro fighter muscle, but for some reason they're ridiculously flexible. Would love to do jiu jitsu to test myself out.

 

Looking now, I see there appears to be a solid enough jiu jitsu spot where I'm going to college at the end of the summer. Do you guys recommend I start in the beginners class for it?

I mean my my foot was on the ground with my knee pointing upwards, then pulled their face onto that lol. Tbf they were pretty bad so im not sure if that would work against a good person lol.

 

I would say start in the beginners class, if you fidn you are too good you can always move up, or you can start in the advanced class and learn by getting your ass whooped :D

Yaay same combo happened to me yesterday. Dude accidentially elbowed me to my eye and after we finished rolling I found out that my chin and the area between nose and mouth (upper lip area?) was burned and reddish as hell. Im looking real handsome today @ work. ;)

I always get little red streaks all over my arms/face/neck/back/torso when I roll.  I don't often, but does anyone have experience with this?  Does it go away if you roll a ton?  I hate going into public looking like I have some crazy skin disorder.  They don't hurt, they just look stupid.  I think its just little broken blood vessels under the skin, that is what it looks like at least.

I have the exact same thing but I have not trained BJJ for long so I cannot answer to your question. Hopefully it at least gets better lol.

It doesn't get a lot better, it's more you just get used to it.

 

Personally, I get a good rashguard and that helps out a tonne with it
