    Yep you can enter.. no need for any kind of license. Just know the rules. Usually you register for the comp. You may need to be part of a BJJ club at some comps.

    The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.

    im pretty sure there were a handfull of BJJ guys at the judo grading I attended - they had white belts , but you could just tell they had 'moves' (along with looking like fighters) ,deffo MMA trainers getting a bit of experience , if there were BJJ comp in the NW i would deffo go and watch , i bet its a hoot !!

    with 8 months of BJJ you can pretty much school judokas of colour grades up to blue IMO...

    Judo focusses more on the throwing than the ground work IME

    thats a bit of a blanket statement

    its much more down to the individual, judo is more about the throw but a lot of judokas favour ground work

    yes a bit but i am basing it on personal experiance of

    1) training at 5-6 clubs in hampshire area as a teen
    2) fighting against judokas in MMA

    some clubs might have changed their curriculum but the outlay is pretty much biased on teaching the throws with ground work as a secondary area, hence why BJJ students who learn 100% ground work will prosper over coloured belts from Judo clubs 90% of the time.

    i guess i'd prob agree with that, majority of time a BJJer will prob out grapple and Judoka, one thing I have noticed moving from No-Gi CJJ to Judo is how heavy a Judoka can make themselves, surely thats a good thing to carry to MMA for working ground and pound?

    weight distribution is key... if i am in side mount i will dump all of my weight on your chest and stop you from squirming.
    Those who dont know where do put their weight end up getting rolled over quickly...
    ground and pound is can be worked from side mount/mount/guard and half guard... pro's like couture prefer to pound someone out in half guard that side mount.

    knee on belly is great for GnP

    scarf hold is the 'go-to' for most judokas i've seen and they try to pop your head off, all you have to do is tuck yourself right into their back, bridge up on your neck and roll to the opposite side... they are left in a very bad position

    yeah i prefer to strike from half guard, my old instructor was always saying to pass, i'm like why? other guys trying to keep me in half guard and not pass and i'm happy to strike from here.

    you have their leg as much as they have yours!
    to pass to side mount you lose the ability to stop them shrimping/getting up on their side and shrugging you off

    i prefered to go for half guard and if i can, trap the near side arm under a knee....ohhhh the fun
