    I just had my first tournament today. I was takign a shit when my division got called so I was late to arrive and was the first match.

    Some odd reason I was very calm. the match lasted about 10 seconds with me gettign fucked up with a flying triangle to armbar.

    I was pissed to say the least.

    Good thing it was a double bracket so I got two more matches. The second one I had a good corner man and followed his instructions and won on points. I was only slightly nervous going into this match.

    Third match I was more nervous as the guy looked physically strong. I lost with 20 seconds left to a Kimura that was put on really well. We both fought hard and it was a great match.

    I thought I was going to be MUCH more nervous then I was to be honest. I was concerned about gassing due to nerves.

    I had my first tourny today, I was not nearly as nervous as I thought I was going to be.

    Not saying I wasnt nervous but it certainly was not overwhelming.

    having a good teamate coachign me helped tremendously to focus on what needed to be done.
