A couple weeks ago I had my first match against a black belt. He us a super legit guy having won 3rd at pans an living and breathing bjj since a kid in Brazil. Well stupid me, I let that fuck with my head big time. I was never in it. I was super passive and hesitant with my movements. I completely let him dictate the match. This match is him sweeping me with a pretty slick one set up from shin on shin guard. 25 seconds later I was taping from an armbar. He us in my division again at my next tournament and can't wait to take him on again. I love thay they mix brown/blackbelts frequently.
