New rules for Polaris

The Submission-Only movement, now with decisions

I read that rundown. Besides the obvious, "their appeal was their submission-only format..." I thought it was loving weak and stupid that they ranked "defending a submission" as a positive scoring criterion. Defending a submission is its own reward.



e. Read this:
http://www.polaris-pro.org/the-rules/

The way that have it set up you literally give points to your opponent by attempting a submission. I'm not sure if they're putting that in so that people only go for realistic submission attempts (i.e. no flailing at weakass kimuras to rack up points) but jesus christ.

So you'll be in town on Monday? Drop by before 7:30 am to do paperwork and get dressed for class and I'll show you around.

Yuns and the others I met through him have been very very nice. No one tapped to my terrible heel hooks that usually get results somewhat at my regular gym and only resulted in me tapping .2 seconds later. Basically, i'm super thankful as its great to see the deeper end of the pool. Got very friendly advice from people, two guys said I rolled at around blue so i'm super proud of myself as I didn't feel like a total waste of time to others. John even complemented me during a takedown drill. That was quite something for me!

Basically, thanks Yuns, you rock.

Just get a couple of cheap red t-shirts and throw them into the wash with your white gi.

Then use the hottest setting your machine will go to.

I just looked up some championship fights and was impressed by the reffing, level of coordination, and the fact that the crowds cheering seemed of respectable size.

And the old epee fencer in me feels like I could wreck shop on some of these fools.

Any links to a Nashville organization I could look into when I have a decent cashflow? I still have my fencing poo poo but not enough equipment to protect me from getting seriously fuckered.

Also, I respect the skill here but I feel like a lot of the movement is so drat inefficient. Why slash when you can stab? Anyways, if there is a good thread I should move to for this stuff, point me there.

If it's anything like M1 Medieval, thrusts/stabs are illegal.

I'm assuming Log's talking about stuff like HEMA longsword, which is fought with modern protective equipment (not medieval armour) and does allow thrusts. I think the reason people cut with the longsword is that the long hilt makes that easy and quick, and thrusts are fairly straightforward to beat aside with accurate cuts.

I'm flipping through a rare judo grappling book from 1967 and it demonstrates the lockdown ("Clamping your opponent's legs") and escapes in a special black bordered page sequence. I just wanted to share. Not sure why. Must have something to do with poking fun at Eddie Bravo.

e. and holy poo poo it includes something that resembles an inverted gogoplata from the bottom of a north-south position.

I really don't know how well i'll be able to squeeze time in but Steeve talked about the wrestling class on thursday, if you want to make it there i'll try extra hard to make it there.

To add to this, I think i made a mistake, the wrestling class is tomorrow, on wednesday, if you can't make it i'll probably go to renzo's for the nogi class. Let me know whenever you can

I'm 99% to head down for a few days this week. Jeff Glover is a friend of mine so was going to go by and train with him but was hoping to roll with some goons as well. Am now contemplating what other places I must drop in a class at.

Saulo Ribero's place is just a few blocks from Victory (where Glover teaches): http://www.unijj.com

Right next door is the Arena, where my old instructor, Jeff Clark, currently teaches: http://www.thearenamma.com . I hadn't realized but apparently Baret Yoshida is the head jiu-jitsu instructor there now.

I'm pretty sure Bravo is on record saying he didn't invent the lockdown or many of his moves, just the system and no-gi application. Cool to hear it was in a book though, B/C I've never seen it referenced in Judo

I live in the North County and never found a decent gym, though I drop in at Black House from time to time and their BJJ is taught by Eduardo Guedes, a Mario Sperry black belt. It's all right but I usually end up doing muay thai when I'm there.

I'll take and upload some pics of the pages when I get home, because my instructor wants to see them too and the book is too rare/valuable to be dragging to the gym. Giving the links to him and to the thread is NBD.
