I spend a lot of time at grappling tournaments, but I’m hardly ever there to compete. Last weekend at the Pendergrass in Wake Forest, NC I decided to spend a little time on the mats. It was a strange decision for me because I hardly ever train no gi, and my time in the sport puts me in the Advanced skill level. I was the smallest of the 4 guys in the “and Up” division, and probably the least experienced. It showed.
I got subbed twice (crucifix, kimura), but I was glad to get a little competition experience.
