Well guys, I am finally doing it. I will be competing this Saturday in my first ever tournament. It is a submission only competition which means no time limits, no point system, you win only by submitting your opponent. I have been training for 3 months so I will be in the novice class with my opponents having 9 months or less experience in class. My instructor seems to think that there will be enough girls there to give me at least 2 matches. So, wish me luck, let's hope I don't die. Some of us are driving up tomorrow to weigh in so that we can relax and sleep in on Saturday. I think everyone is cutting weight but me.

Mood: excited and scared.....

I will. We leave here tomorrow at 3 pm. Weigh ins are from 7-9. I need an early bedtime so I won't keep you out late but I'll buy you a drink for sure and have one for myself. Check your PMs in a few min.

I have a game plan in place for this tournament. I know only 1 takedown that works well for me. So if I don't get that position handed to me, I will just jump guard. :laugh: I practiced that on a guy last night, just jumping guard over and over.

~AmyYeah, in most states, that's referred to as Rape...or at least mugging.:scared0011::ninja::laugh:

O, & Kim I won't be able to take pics as I'll be leaving for Belize 3am Saturday. I'll take tons of pics down there, though, & post 'em ASAP!

I didn't want to say anything until I knew for sure that I was going to get to compete. I had an injury not that long ago and I've been worried I'd rehurt myself or something equally stupid. So, it's for sure and I'll be there! I am sure someone from my gym will take video and I have people slated to use my camera for pictures already. I'll post the results of my butt kicking (mine or theirs....) when I can.

Brought home a silver medal. Here's a couple of pictures.

She had me in side control so I crossfaced her and wrapped my legs around her neck. I didn't really have a submission, it was more a control thing. Her arm was not in the right position to do much.

I grabbed my foot to bring it up for rubber guard and then tried to transition to the proper ankle hold but she was able to get out of it.

Me with my silver medal.
