I don't sit out unless I have control of one arm.

Worst decision I ever made.

Pretty much, the peek outs, sit outs, etc require some sort of control on your opponent or really good sensitivity in sticking to your opponent with your body. These sorts of escapes rely a touch more on athleticism, but a large majority of it is getting the details correct and using them ONLY when you have the correct conditions for the escape.

With the new rules, newaza is lasting longer at tournaments which is exposing the fighters who rely on it to force a mate. Refs are allowing newaza to last longer when there is some progress being made, resulting in turtle becoming a victim pose. At my last tournament, I arm-barred the one guy who turtled with waki gatame as he let me crush him into the floor and, applied weight to control, and ripped his arm out. He was upset because the ref would have called mate for not enough action, but he was not aware that refs eased up on this rule for a while.

He went to complain to the head ref, who is my sensei, and all he told him was to learn how to fight with the new rules.

That's cool. I last cross trained judo several years ago, so my experience might be becoming out of date.

After having ages of basically sucking at no-gi takedowns because I'm more of a grip machine, I started trying to use a lateral drop earlier and had massive success with it. Always nice when you get those little "lightbulb" moments.

No-submission update.

Talked to my coaches a bit about it as I've stalled out. One has told me to start finishing submissions again, but only if it doesn't sacrifice position.

The other has me starting from turtle for all rolls for a while.

So now I'm only going for stuff like RNC, aggressive guillotines, straight armbars (ude gatami), and scramble triangles.
