A couple of nights ago at open mat training, one of our white belt Japanese students tried to gogo-plata me. I postured, passed and submitted him. He's a great dude, but always tries to pull off the fanciest stuff... Flexa screams at him most of the time: "NUMATA!!! NO CRAZY MOVEMENT!!!"
Then my other friend, who's a blue belt, told the Japanese kid: "He passed your guard, because you didn't go for for mission control to double bagger control. That way, there is no way for him to pass, and he's trapped..."
Mind you. I have been training BJJ since 2000, and the more I learn, the more I realize I don't understand anything about jiu jitsu.
But I do know one thing: hearing the word mission control coming from the mouth of a one-year blue belt teaching a spazzing white belt, I have to grind my teeth...
Can I get an Amen?
