Eastern Open

Yours truly, losing again.

My favorite part is when about 10 seconds into my pin, they come over and tell me I am pinning him. As you can imagine, distracting. He was awarded a Wazari for the ko soto gari. You could go either way. You could give him Ippon too, or koka. I was in a rush on my feet. I didn't get to the grips I really needed, and I did not unbalance the guy. Then when I got to the guard, well, the calls were really inconsistent on the ground. And I looked really lazy. This guy was not that knowledgable, and I should have just come at him really hard. Instead, it was like another day at the Dojo. Kind of dumb, considering the drive.
