So, I just found out about a grappling competition that I could actually make it to in about a month and a week. I'm interested in entering the light-weight novice division (under 1 year experience), it's no-gi and I mostly do gi training. I've never done competition before, the rules and points system look fairly standard and I'm familiar with those, but I'm not sure what's best to work on in order to compete effectively.
Apart from standup and no gi training, are there exercises and drills that I should be doing to practice, and in addition, what level of intensity should I be practicing at, in terms of resistance and frequency? I don't want to injure myself/burn out, but I would like to be in top form for such a thing. Thank you!
