Montana Grappling had another tournament this weekend, this time in Butte, MT. I competed in both the no-gi and gi competitions, and had a good time. Felt like there was decent amount of people in each bracket. I learned a buttload of stuff: what seems to work for me and what doesn’t, and a lot about what I most need to get my shit together on. My biggest “A ha!” realization after the tournament is: how much nerves and adrenaline affect my energy, strength, speed and head… well, I guess that’s just part of the whole game! I guess I just have to do more of this stuff and get used to it, so I can do tournaments and be more relaxed. I came out on top in both my divisions (no-gi and gi) and got myself two gold medals. I’m going to the pawn shop!
Thanks to everyone who made the tournament happen.
Here are videos of most of my matches:
