    I must say that win or lose, It's better to compete and grow, then be a spectator.

    Since I have nothing else to add to this post I thought I would simply pick on the errors in your grammar. The above should read:

    This will be the 1st BJJ tournament for me and my 10 yr old son.
    Oh, and good luck! Do you wear your judo belt in the matches still? What belt do you hold? It'd really suck if you had a purple belt on or something and a white belt schooled you.

    You make the assumption that you will only be able to use 20% of your experience.

    Last year I won the Gracie Open with Tai Otoshi. The groundwork was only momentary as neither of us would pull guard. So the assumption that the outcome will be decided by groundwork is not always true.

    Keep in mind, that 20% of THIER training was probably Judo takedowns.

    I had a couple of years of Judo and went into several white belt competitions when I started BJJ. I totally dominated them. Like crushing the **** out of everyone. Most of these white belts had maybe 1 or 2 competitions IF ANY under thier belt. I had dozens of them from Judo. I would throw them and stall a while. When they really opened up I would sub them. I suggest using the same strategy.

    The only reason that I recommended going in as blue is because the hosting school members suggested it. Nothing worse than starting your first match and having everyone groan as people who know you start yelling about your 5 years of Judo (it will be 5 years by thier standards). And the referee will instantly look at you like a sandbagger. Even if you win your victory will be hollow because everyone will look at you like you are on roids.

    It's a lose/lose situation. Make the best of it.

    I just wanted to know approx. skill level person with 2.5 yrs in Judo to compete in BJJ fairly as possible because I have about same yrs under my belt and I wondered about that. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

    I lost my first bjj competition by around 14-4 (or some similar number) I had a sweep or two but the guy continually took me down and when I'd start something on the ground stand up.

    2.5 years of judo... compete as a blue.
    To do otherwise would also disrespect your friend's and their club.

    Enjoy, the BJJ tournaments are great fun. Make some friends in the other teams and start some friendly rivalries. You'll get to fight the same guys again.

    Enjoy.

    Regarding judo in BJJ tournaments, would a judo player be allowed to throw his opponent, then back off and wait for him to get up, throw again, etc. just to rack up points, or is there some provision to prevent that?

    Most of the time there is, but you have to check your specific ruleset.
