Hey man I told you’d I’d update you on tournament experience.
It was pretty nerve racking lol I had to cut 12 lbs of weight from deciding to go to this morning (12 days)
I was pretty dehydrated going in. I went from 201 lbs to 188.6. Never cut like that and had to perform.
I won gold in my no gi devision and silver in my gi devision. My no gi I got moved up a weight class 205 so I still had to cut the weight for my gi. But was way undersized in no gi. Still pulled it out with a little grit and luck. Let’s just say I like them kimuras from guard!
I’m need to the gi but love it. I did pretty well I felt in gi and I could have won gold but I was gassed at that point of the extremely long day.
Compete again in the near future, but I won’t compete on such short notice and won’t compete where I have to drop weight like this. I was cramping up in every match and I’m in really decent shape, but dehydrating yourself the. Rolling isn’t advised. Especially going 110% , nerves and anxiety present .
It was an amazing experience and I’d recommend other folks go for it and give it a shot.
