    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    first bjj tourney this weekend

    hey guys I know I havn't posted in a while, just thought I'd pop in tell the hater clan that I've decided to finally grab my nuts and join a grappling tournament. I've avoided it for a while because my perspective on my skill is pretty skewed by the fact there are so many talented dudes at my academy that stomp on me and handle me at will.. so I always percieve myself as being really crappy at bjj (which I probably am) but this makes me forget that when I roll with someone of equal skill level I usually dominate.

    So now I've got the day before competition butterflies and am most likely looking forward to being paired up with someone from my academy and getting stomped handily.

    I also cut off a few lbs last night to make 187, my first time doing that too. I'm thirsty.

    anyway wish me luck or at least tell me you hate me and hope that I fail miserably.
    I think it was two ninjas taped together, to make one GIANT NINJA!!!!

    you'll do fine. Try to stay busy before your matches and not let the butterflies get to you - they're a self-fullfilling prophecy.

    Maybe he's like me...I have "forgotten" to bring a video camera to both my tournaments because I think I'm boring as hell even when I win.

    Based on my craptastic performance, I think I would prefer that the event never happened.
