Noah did some promotions on Tuesday night. John (Johnnie FootLock) and I were promoted to Blue Belt. Jason and John were promoted to 1st degree Blue Belts. Beau was promoted to 4th degree White Belt, and Dante was promoted to 4th degree Yellow Belt. Buiu was in from Florida for the weekend. It was great to have him there. The Balance girls came out for the night too.

Fourth Match of the Day

video

Here's the fourth and last match of the day. It ended well. Missed getting the third match recorded since everyone ended up competing at the same time. I had 16 points this match and ended it with a choke.

Would have loved to see the third match since that was the match against the purple belt.

Grappler's Quest






I can honestly say that I am very pleased with my performance today! The divisions were looking a little thin, so they did some combining and made sure we all got in a few matches (thank you Karen!)


Women's White Belt 160lbs +

First Match went pretty well, I got a good single leg and stayed strong on top for most of the match. Thought I had an Americana on really well that turned into some kind of chaos, but she held out til the end. I won on points.

Second Match also went well. This girl was a little more rough than the first, got another single leg. I won on points.


Women's Absolute (Purple, Brown, and Black)

First Match was against a purple belt. She pulled guard at the very beginning, She had my one arm really good and it was difficult to get out of. The first 3 minutes was a good fight. I slipped out of an armbar and triangle. No points only 3 advantages to her. Just past 3minutes I tapped to a wicked armbar.

Second Match for third place. Takedown was a little sloppy. Kept cross body and the mount for most of the match, earned atleast 16 points, but won with a collar choke from the guard.



Driving over to New Jersey this morning I felt like crap, and didn't even want to compete. Not really sure what happened, but got a little warm up in and everything kind of fell into place on the mat. I wasn't too tired during any of the matches. I'm glad I stepped up to the more advanced absolute division. A lot of people really seemed to be looking out for us today.
