Points Question

Hey Felipe

 

a question about following situation

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJrZSBD4MJs

 

In my first action, I almost take his back after I come on top, after 7 seconds I am back on bottom, but did not receive any points, only an advantage

Re: Points Question

Unfortunatly (for you) the reff was right. You did come on top for a while, but did not secure the position for the 3 seconds. I know the action took 7 seconds, but you were not in control, you were "hanging in there". Understand what I mean? I agree with the reff call.

Your deep half swept was very good, what I would have try diferent would be to scape the hip to the left on second 24'' and try to put him to your right instead of taking him to the side you took, that would give you more control on his hip and for sure the top position.

I will post a video that will help your style of guard a lot!

Re: Points Question

okay thanks, now I know

So if I secured the position ( either got my hooks in, or spinned around ) I would have got the 2?

After rewatching seems right, because the way i tuned i could not straighten my right leg to block his hips

 

thanks!!

Re: Points Question

yes, if you had secure the position and stayed on top (with or without the hook) you would get the 2 points)
