I went for jailbreak with my inside arm. He freed his trapped arm and darced me. It was sweet. We had an awesome roll. Matts a stud! I hope to come visit You guys soon.
As to how I got matched with Matt; I entered the expert division. Ive been training for 4 years, but just joined 10P in December. I had previously placed 2nd in intermediate so I thought Id give it a shot. My 1st BJJ instructor has a black-belt in Jeet Kun Do so I never got a promotion from him. My 2nd BJJ instructor Kyle Watson never promoted me because I never took his gi classes regularly, and I only trained under him for 6 months. So, I am still a white-belt, although its starting to turn a little grey.
The expert division doesnt have nearly as many illegal moves, so I dont have to go through a rulebook in my head the whole time Im grappling. And besides, theres no such thing as sand-bagging in the expert division. I highly recomend it.
Looking forward to seeing You at NAGA Missouri, October 13th.
