The Agony of Defeat

I recently competed in the 2007 Arizona Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu State Championship. I won my first fight, apparently 8 to 0, though I was exhausted for my second match, against my much younger and much stronger opponent, Jamie Varner, who (not surprisingly) went on to place first in the division.

Here I am tapping out to a choke you can see I am only feebly defending against.

Thanks, guys!

I'm hoping to put up some pictures of my first fight soon.

Keep an eye out!

That's some full-on stuff Einzige. Hope there's no injuries.

Nothing serious, anyway, Dikkii. The most common "injury" in Jiu-Jitsu competitions is mat burn on the knuckles of the toes.
