    Before matches I pop and do the robot lightly.

    So far it's the only thing I've found that relaxes me a little.

    Oh wait, thats post-tourny rituals.

    Before a fight i have a nap then get my hands wrapped. A few hours sleep in the afternoon does a world of good for my nerves since i skip that boring period where I'm in a dirty motel room with nothing to do except think about fighting. Getting your hands wrapped is an awesome ritual, slowly rising adrenaline while having a chat with your coaches and other fighters from your gym and when its finished not only your hands are ready for the fight, your mind is too.

    First tournament: I got off working night shift, so I drank a few cups of coffee and had a breakfast sammich.

    Second tournament: I got off work the night before, so I slept a while, took a ferry, drank some coffee, and then sat around for three hours.

    I think I'll keep the theme going for the third competition, I have the feeling I'll be working, and then partake of some coffee. I tend to focus on the essentials by checking a list off in my mind. Coffee? Check. Took a ****? Check. Ate some food a few hours until go time? Check.

    I take my belt home (Its never at home but hanging in my gym, except when I'm going to the tourney (I have a spare at home for seminars and misc.))

    I place the belt over my bed (on the top of the head board self thingy) and sleep under it.

    When I wake up the day of the tourney I wear my belts around my neck (Draped not tied) from when I leave my second floor till I reach the parking lot of the tourney.

    Then I place it in my bag.

    Yea, I know its strange.

    Oh also, never wash your belt, it drains out the sex ghosts.

    I competed today and I was whistling while I was rolling, I also sung god bless America quietly into a guys ear while I had him back mounted and was working for a choke.


    try whistling, it creeps out your opponent and relaxes you so so so much, so much so I used moves I had never tried in sparring, though through them step by step and then preformed them

    To be fair I could've said masturbate furiously right until you step onto the mat.

    I heard wrestlers in those unitards used to do this, or something similar. They'd end up entering the area with an erection showing through their skintight thing, thus unnerving the other guy.

    OP

    Eat right, do your best to get a good night's sleep and take a dump in the morning. Never heard of anyone puking in a match. Getting the crap slammed out of you would be much more embarrasing.

    Don't forget to take documentation showing your membership.

    Go have fun.

    "Hajime" will take care of any prematch jitters.
