This weekend I'm competing in my first tournament as a whitebelt. I wasnt going to compete because I am still pretty noob (only been training since late jan) but I just thought it would be a good experience win or lose. But as it gets closer, I think about it more and what I'm going to do, and I really want to win my weight class. All of the guys I roll with at my school are 200lbs+ and some are in the 260 range...I'm 150lbs. Needless to say I get schooled, but I've been working pretty well off my back to not get subbed and I think it really will give me an advantage when going against guys my size. Anyway friday in our no gi class we had a guy come in that was my size and I destroyed him for 16 min. It was very easy to reverse him, get mount, sub him, I got bored so I just practiced letting him get mount and reversing him, I even let him sink in a guillotine and pull guard and I was able to muscle out of it. I just felt much much stronger than him. I am a pretty tall lean guy, but I feel like I might have a strength advantage over other guys my size. Being as I've never been to a tournament I don't really know how it will go. Is there a big chance that all my competition will be 4 stripe whitebelts that train daily with big guys as well and will just tool me? Or do you think alot of them will be where I am at skill wise, and I might have an advantage because of who I spar with, how often I train, and strength?
