Hey guys, I have my first wrestling tournament coming up on saturday. I'm technically sound and I've managed to dominate the guys in my weight class using "retard" strength. The only thing I don't have is mental strength. I need some advice on how to build up on mental confidence. I already have a few things going, but I feel that sherdoggers can help me on this. Like what are some thing you invision before a match? Especially since 45% of us have competed, and probably 70% of us practice in some form of martial art. I am going to wear a cup and talk to my opponents before I wrestle to build up my confidence. I've also dropped down from 155 to 148 within the past week for the 145 class, so hopefully wrestling smaller guys will boost up my confidence. I know that 90% of a fight is mental (ya, I've done BJJ and KickBoxing non-competitively) but I havent gotten to the level where I feel comfortable competing. I'm going to go through my old Blackbelt/Grappling mags to read up on confidence/mental toughness.
