Hey folks,

I've recently found a school where I feel comfortable and ready to train seriously again, I've been wearing the gi for about 2 weeks now, and had my first white belt tournament.

It was too crowded to make footage happen, but I'm going to try and post some pics here.

I won my division without too much trouble, as I should have given my greater overall grappling experience than the other competitors. But, given I am still learning how to use the gi as part of my game, and not having trained seriously or regularly for about 2 years, I am content with my performance.

While I can't really feel great about winning a white belt tournament, I was able to work on some of my clinch work I've been missing, and observe more of the differences in the gi vs no gi game when I got to stand and watch the blue belts and better white belts roll.

Lol he had it coming. Jk, he was actually very cool, and only a couple years older than me, just had the buzz cut goatee combo. I hear I don't look it, but I'm almost 30, he was about 35 to maybe 40 I'd reckon. 2 young Daughters cheering him on, while my little one played on her tablet lol.

I'd imagine Cali being pretty diverse. Here anyway, at BJJ comps you still have Judo dans, MMA dudes, and Eastern Europeans with wrestling experience littered in the brackets, with White belt being the biggest, so don't be hard on yourself lol. Congrats and keep it up!
