    I've got a coupla videos here that's footage of me at my last tournament (this past saturday). And I'd love some tips/advice etc, that y'all could pull from these videos. :)

    I made a list of things that i should improve on already from watching it, but more is always awesome haha.

    Welcome to Facebook

    -- my first match, which i won.

    Welcome to Facebook
    --part 2

    I also have another video which i'll upload from that tournament, which is my Gi match, again, same problem as the other video. Will upload when i get it.

    Thanks for any advice ahead of time.

    man were you competing when the lights went out.. I was in the middle of a match and saw the lights flickering then went out.. The lights came back on and I didnt hear the ref say start again, and I kept asking, and all of a sudden my opponent starts attacking again

    Haha yessir I do. I lost at ProStar to a guy from Sugarland MMA. He was pretty solid. Beat me on points and we were both GASSED! Really cool guy just can't remember his name.
