    I have just registered. Whitebelt Adult Male Feather. This will be my second tournament, I went to the pan-ams and lost my first match by 4points, I am hoping to do better this time. I have been training for about 7mos (last 2 weeks off because of stupid flu).

    I just wanted to see who else is going and what class you were competing in.

    Good luck and I will see you there.

    I thought about it, but I don't have the guts to compete, at least not yet :icon_sad:
    I've been training BJJ for 15 mos.
    If I did go, I'd be in the whitebelt female under 141 class.

    Around 100 bucks.

    With the crumbling state of the economy, I think I'll pass on this one.

    $100 isnt that much considering the experince! Most of you would spend that much money on a pair of jeans, a night out on the town or to see a concert or sporting event.....so why not for BJJ?

    Since I am a relative noooob to BJJ I didn't realize that even the major tourneys had belt level distinctions....this is very cool indeed. Doubt I make the trip for this, but it's good for me to have this info now.

    I'll be there to support my team but won't be competing. I feel I'm not ready yet. I don't want mundials to be my first tournament.

    Just watch out for the "shins on bicep" guard. If that happens, the triangle is seconds away.

    not true, bma mat wont be able to battle on the tatami mats as he is currently battling severe acne, and everyone knows that only bma mat is the master of the shin on bicep guard.....he in fact even was kind enough to make an instructional on it, only to be ridiculed and to leave the site....and get back on the mat to tap poor training partners over and over and over

    I heard bma mat is in the same weightclass as kron, and rickson said hes deffinetely considering having kron pull out as to not embarass the family

    (damn, im procrastinating my final research paper for school.....if you couldnt tell with my recent BS posts LOL)
