lol, I will as long as I don't get subbed in the first minute of my first fight. I am not expecting too much from this other then a learning expeirence. I have only trained no-gi 3 times this year and one of then was this week. I have a private lesson with a black belt friend of mine to go over kneebars and kneebar escapes. He gave me a video to watch before hand. Have you ever heard of Stephin Kedtling? I never had but his instruction is very good despite a very poor production on the video.
Anyways, I'm kind of worried because when I trained no-gi last Monday I gave up my back in every sparring session. I only got subbed once and I rolled out of one into an ankle lock, but I can't remember how I gave it up each time. I was pretty good about keeping the hooks out and avoided getting scored on, but I don't know what I was doing wrong.
One cool thing was Jake Shield's brother was my training partner so I learned allot about the techniques we went over (Guillatine and Guillatine escapes). That dude is fucking rediculously good.
