    Hey guys, did a brief search and didnt find anything. Mundials are fast approaching and I'm getting excited. Who will be there to compete/spectate? Any locals have any advice?

    I signed up for the purple belt, adult, heavy division. Unfortunately, a schedule conflict has popped up with something at work. Now I'm trying hard to get the IBJJF to refund my money. Otherwise there's a remote chance I might ditch work and show up to compete.

    I'm considering entering white belt, 140lb division. Leaning towards it but unsure. Any idea how big the division will be?

    No point. I heard BMA_MAT would be there armbar'ing and triangle'ing everyone.

    haha... If I can convince my boss, I'll be there. Otherwise, whoever has the good fortune of drawing me in the first round will get a bye.

    Those are heavyweights? Look to be at LEAST super heavy if not ultra.

    I'm sure you can convince him. Just show him how many hundreds of hours you've billed in May to make up for the few you'll miss in June.

    jarrod weighs in at around 270 so he's way above pesado. i came close to beating him when we were blue belts at the american nationals two years ago. a small mental error on my part and it was over though.

    Loan me your ID and I'll sub in for you. I doubt they check that closely, and I am on-weight for heavy at the moment. :icon_chee

    haha... sounds like a good idea. I have a OC Bar function also scheduled for that day so I definitely cannot go. Sure we look nothing alike, have different teams (patches), and belong to different ethnicities... but I'm sure our similar BJJ games will fool them!
