Grappled with. 6ft 4 giant but not that strong. Had to stand up to open his guard. Rolled him as he lost his balance a bit.

Showed a beginnimg chinese person how to do the triangle.

Rolled with a stronger bigger more advanced guy but we werent very successful either except for a double ankle sweep on my part which ended in laughter.
