    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I won a medal!!!

    Just got back from my first tournament - Submission Only XI in Webster, NY - where I took silver in the over 30 no-gi!

    In a division of two.

    I fought in three divisions overall and went 0-4. Obviously, I would've liked to have gotten a win just for the thrill, but seeing as I've been training BJJ for two months, I didn't expect much. At 41 years old and 196lbs, my division was extremely thin, and I ended up fighting people much younger and much heavier. The last guy I fought was a foot taller and weighted at least 75lbs more than me. One of his coaches told me he used to play for the Buffalo Bills.

    On the plus side, I managed to take my first guy down just as I'd drilled, and if it'd been a judo match I would've won by ippon. Otherwise, it was a good reality check, and an incentive to train harder for next time.

    Congratulations!! You won by showing up and competing. The losers are the ones who never put themselves in a position to lose.

    Congrats man, competing is expensive and a big step that many never make. Several of my medals are also silvers and bronzes out of 2 and 3 man divisions. Just take them at face value, and remember the effort you put forth to earn them.

    How'd you like the event? Andrew, Brian, and Chrissy are all extremely cool, and I like their arrangements much, much better than NAGA.

    Bearing in mind that I have nothing to compare it to, I thought it was a great tournament. It was well-organized and ran smoothly, everyone was laidback and friendly, and the rule-set made for competitive, attacking matches. I'd definitely go again.

    Next time, bring back the gold. HEY! Maybe we could make a bronze, silver and gold medalist tags for those who win 1st, 2nd and 3rd place at a tournament!
