In the grappling art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu it's vital to never give your opponent your back as it leaves you extremely vulnerable to chokes and locks.

Chop, desature, contrast and sharpen.

Nice action shot. His shoulder is cut off at the top of the frame, but with this sort of scene, you get what you get. Can't exactly ask them to do this for the benefit of the camera, then it would be wrestling.

I wonder how many people here actually train BJJ? I've shot a few tournaments and the shots people seem to like the best are certainly expressions like this, but I find people respond better when you get a whole lot closer. You have preserved the context quite well, tho.
