I had heard rumors that these tournaments are sloppily run, but I had no idea it was going to be this bad. There was maybe 400 competitors with six mats. The entire time I was there they never had more that 3 mats running at a time. Most of the time it was either 2-3. The flyer said that the doors open at 9:30. They didn't open till almost 11:30. They were still sitting htings up, that is just ridiculous. My team mate decideds to come with me, he is a pretty good compeitive judo player, and wanted to test his skills against some BJJ guys. It was his first tournament and he didn't really know what to expect. But he signed up for the black belt division to see what the best have. Well unfortunately he was the only person to sign up for the black belt division, which I can't hold that against them, but the fact they neglected to tell him at any point was ridiculous. He didn't find out until the only division he could go in was the blue belt division. So yeah we were like at least four hours behind, which is ridiculous for a small tournament. Plus you had no idea when you might be called up so you coudln't just go eat. I had like a danish, granola bar, and a banana all day. By the time I was done with GI i just got the fuck out of there and skipped out on my no gi part. I didn't want to be there till freaking midnight. At least my compeition was good. I ending up placing third out of 22 in the blue belt open, and I can honestly say that the two guys who placed ahead of me were better than me, especially the gentlemen who won it. He would have done quite well in the purple belt division, he had skills. Submitted every person he faced. I might give Gracie Worlds a chance because of the whole Arnold Fitness Expo, but I really don't think I plan on compeition in any more Relson Gracie tournaments.
