    Okay, there are a lot of first time competitors that ask questions about preparing for tournaments, so I thought I may write up a guide of sorts. I hope this gets a sticky! There are a couple important things I am going to address in the following:

    few tips from Saulo Ribeiro:

    ›› If you are still “in college,” or in other words, brown belt and below, it is hard to study your adversaries since you don’t have much access to videos of these belt groups, with the exception of such notables as Roger, Garcia, Br

    I just read the advice posted here and thought it was great. I am a white belt and have only one competition under my belt. I have since been watching training videos at www.learnbjjtechniques.com and have improved my game a great deal. I watch the videos and then bring the new techniques to the gym where I try them out. I also find watching BJJ videos all the time I am developing the train of thought to transition from one move to another or know what to do better in certain positions. Hope this helps someone out.

    for white belts. if your above a white belt this would be no use. because if your a blue belt and dont know how to ... cut weight/ use cardio. etc. you dont deserve to be a blue belt.

    but good ready

    I don't think being experienced in cutting weight should be a prerequisite for getting a blue belt. Some people have the balls to fight at their natural weight.
