Oh well. Lost two matches by submissions, and got eliminated. First match was against a 4-stripe white belt from another school. He pretty much pwned me the entire match, with the exception of a nice upa I got him with. Which he instantly reversed on me LOL, finishing me with an Eziekiel (sp?) choke.

Second match I was doing very well, getting and maintaining dominant position for most of the match. With me ahead something like 7 or 8 to zero on points, he manages to pull guard and snag my arm for an armbar submission. Dammit!

Maybe next time. It was fun though, and I got to meet a lot of other BJJ/Judo folk. Everyone was very cool, and the tournament was run flawlessly - it started on time and ended on time, almost to the minute!

Good experience, and I'll get out there again hopefully. Thanks for everyone's support!
