If you have any ego though, check it at the door or else you're fucked. Not saying you do have one, but a couple of weeks ago some douche came to our school and we all fucking humbled him, it was glorious. He had no idea what he was doing, I Omoplata'ed him
Edit: Sorry for double post.
yeah, i only ever get caught by 2 mates who have actually done BJJ. I remember at a end of season cricket piss up we were all smashed and decided to have a competition. Fight round i got taken down and landed on my shoulder bounced up slightly and then copped his head right on my left collarbone. Couldn't use my left arm at all and i had no power whatsoever. eventually we got stood up and i got him in a one armed guillotine. Anyone with the slightest bit of knowledge would've been able to get out easy but he tapped
Got it x-rayed like a week later, the guy taking the x-ray thought there was a fracture, the doc he send it to didn't but now that collarbone sits higher than the other and still causes some pain every now and again. And yeah, no problem on the ego thing. I know when i'm going to get my ass handed to me haha
