so im competing in the grappling games in chicago on friday, and know the guy i'm going up against... it's a 7 minute superfight in the absolute division... i'll be on at roughly 7 pm in oak lawn, IL on 94th street and oak park avenue... would be awesome with someone with a linker tee to come out so i can spot em...here's the kicker.... this year we can slam and reap... this will completely change my strategy because of the fact that the dude i'm up against is like 230 and i'm currently 188... but if i can reap, i'll roll against anyone any size any place anywhere... in the ifbjj tourneys a bunch of people don't want competitors to be able to reap, which i believe takes away from the growth of the sport because all guys in abu dhabi do now is grab your legs and try to break them.... i won't be wearing a gee, so here's my strategy....
The exact same as chess... in chess, you never want to be the first in on an exchange of pieces to begin the game... this is why the etymology of the word "pawn" is so powerful... i'm going to let this guy take me down.... but i swear to you this motherfucker will not pass my guard... if he shoots with his head on my right side, i am immediately going for a guillotine and locking in my hooks... if he goes for a slam, i'm getting both my legs up and one of his arms in, locking in a triangle cause he won't hurt me with the slam unless he gets very lucky... if he shoots on my left hand side, (i have no guillotine on that side; its trash and my shoulder is totally fucked for life) i'm staying in guard and looking to sweep... from there, i guess we'll see.... but no x guard against a big dude ever again... i'm locking in my hooks tight cause last time i tried playing x guard against a monster dude, i got my leg bent almost completely backwards... it sucked
