Tournament

April 6th, 2009  |  Published in OMGBFFA's blog  |  6 Comments

I competed in the Copa Ontario tournament this past Saturday and took gold. I won my first match by armbar against Lindsay, one of Omar’s blue belts, in 26 seconds, beating my previous “fastest submission” record by 12 seconds:

…and my second match (also by armbar) against my friend Nicole in about 1:50.

I hate competing in the gi but I am glad that I did the tournament, because it helped me test my mental preparation. This time, when I got to the venue, I wasn’t overly social even though I knew a lot of the people there. I went in with the express intent to fuck people up, and that’s what I did.

The mental part of the game is the one I have struggled with most, so it’s good to be testing new approaches. I think this one works for me.

    F’in sweet. I liked how you pretty much sat on Nicole’s head for 20 seconds. :P Gratz!

    That was me. Krista’s shooting the video – you can hear her commentary in the background. ;)

    I’d love to take credit for that sweet armbar but that was OMGBFFA. These days, now that OMBGFFA is shrinking, pretty much the only way you can tell us apart is by the hair. Same cut, but mine is purple. :)

    Oops! Sorry OMGBFFA :P. I couldn’t get the video where I was watching, and was just reading of the awesomeness. Rock on, and congrats!!

    Krista, you are still badass, too ;).
