Guys, I wanna compete in my first no gi competition. I'm a blue belt (received it in June this year). Which level should I enter: beg, int or adv? Thanks!
Intermediate I'd say. Advance would be purple, brown, black
it depends, how long have you been training for? most tournys that do no gi go by years training.
if you train more than a year go Intermediate, if more tha 3 go Advanced.
this is off the naga registration form:
novice - under 6 months (no wrestlers)
beginner - 6 months to 2 years
intermediate - 2 to 5 years
expert - 5+ years

with that being said there're guys in my school who've been training just over a year and won intermediate several times ... so if you are at least on an avg level for a blue belt you should be going intermediate
perfect ive only been doing this 4 months and school all the guys who have been there for around a year... gets me hopefull for novice.
Thanks, guys! I'll go intermediate then, although in september it will be 2 years since I began training...
