Spend five bucks and go watch the tourney. You'll get as much out of it without getting tooled.

these guys are all a bunch of pansies, this is a great idea as your hapkido will more than have prepared you for the tournament.
i suggest that you wear your hapkido black belt (you do have one, right?) and enter the black belt division.
also remember that tapping out is for pussies, so don't tap, ever.

A guy who would enter a BJJ tournament with nary a fucking lesson is the same kind of dude that would get a tattoo on his dick.

I cannot believe you are all ruining a perfect opportunity for lulz.
I hate all of you.

After being tapped in thirty seconds, how would you spend the rest of your afternoon?
Try to go to a tournament that's being held in the same town as a nice museum or orchestra. Make it a trip.

Hi, cross training?
According to Google maps, you live in a suburb of Chicago. You're telling me you can't find a BJJ/Judo/Sambo/MMA/Polish Kielbasa Wrestling school in one of the largest metro areas in the U.S.?

Now that I've gone to a tournament before..
Don't take my thread below or related posts as a motivation to go to a tournament unprepared.
Just letting you know, almost none of my HKD training was directly used in the tournament I went to. I trained in judo and jujitsu very hard (albeit for a short time) as well as trained in full-contact kickboxing for years before doing my tournament.
If you are confident, and hopefully there are skill divisions and its local then maybe it might be a good experience. it will NOT, however, be a replacement for training. A good part of what makes tournaments such good experiences is the months and years you spend training for it.
I'm only mentioning this in case you read my posts and it had a role in your decisions:
My tournament was NOT a pure grappling tournament.
Oh, get videos.
