    Thanks for the info. Do they have a website?

    This tourney will fill the gap between the Arnolds and the Caique very nicely.

    Id like to go to one of these but where I am in a JJJ school I dont have any idea what to enter as. I personaly think im only about a blue belt. I held my own aginst a royce Gracie blue belt from Pa that outweighed me by at least 40 pounds. We went at it for about 15 min before we decided to call it quits. I was wearing him down but I was so thirsty and dry my tounge was sticking to the roof of my mouth.

    What do the do with non BJJ entrants? Besides laughf at them and tap them out?

    I assume you'd enter at the level you/your instructor thought you were at. I doubt they have any conventions set up to deal with the issue.

    Did you end up competing in the Hayastan Grappling Challenge? I ended up having tests + papers + retarded family stuff, so it was a no go for me.

    Sigh, sadly my girlfriend had some stuff going on and I didnt go. That and my instructor was busy and I didnt want to go alone. I think there is another one coming up in west virginia or something fairly soon. I want to go to one of those Paradise warrior retreat things. Man its funny how when you dont have money to do stuff like that you are free and able but now that im working good I can never get the time off.

    The Hayastan was a good experience but the setup was terrible. It was going on the same time as a karate tournament in a big ballroom. They could only have 4 matches going on at once and the area was pretty tight with no spectator room so the edges were packed with people. Next year they are going to do it on a different day than the karate tournament because of the turnout. I competed in beginner (under 2 years experience) heavyweight (200+) and had three fights. The bad thing about it was they had so many enter they had to switch from a double elimination format to a single elimination. It didn't end up affecting me, but some of my training partners weren't so happy about it. So you didn't miss the greatest tournament ever, but it wasn't bad.

    Thats cool you won top place in your divesion. I like how you went the humble route too and didnt brag about it. Thats pretty rare.
    So in your honest opinnion how stiff was the competion? Was there any of the guys from The Sumerset Karate in it? The instructor of it has his a level 4 or something certificate from Gokor. I have been wanting to roll with some of those guys.

    I know I faced a guy from a school called abajutsu first, my second fight was against someone who was huge but pretty terrible, and my last match was against some cop who trains with his officer buddies. I don't think I faced any of the Somerset Karate guys. It was only my second tournament but I would rate them as better competition than I went up against at the Caique tournament last year, though I competed white belt and gi.

    In all honesty, a cool head, being relaxed, and good conditioning allowed me to win fairly easy. I'd imagine that the first guy and last guy I grappled could possibly have better jiu-jitsu than me, but not on that particular day. I wouldn't call it stiff competition, at least not in the beginners division. However, some of Gokor's competitors in the advanced division looked really tough. They may have been Somerset Karate guys.

    It was good enough competition to plan on doing it again next year.
