Never leave it to the referee!

I came across this video of the finals of the 2008 Asian Open Jiu Jitsu Championships. It was definitely a tough fight and I feel that I was putting the pressure on the whole time. I still cant figure why he was given points for the pass.  After you’ll notice that   I give the ref (Naoya Uematsu) a few words of criticism.   I know better now and have been drilling those omoplata sweep/finish sequences with better movement.
