Everytime I have a tournament coming, I am excited and want to test out my skills. When a tournament is around a week away, I stress and usually not compete, for the fear of losing or worst, being humiliated. I have competed a few times at white belt before but the stresses are still there. I just don't like losing. I don't like having a bad record. I don't like to lose or be humiliated in front of my instructor, friends, and/or training partners. Does this get better over time? I know it will but does it really? If so, how many tournaments have you competed before it was just a normal thing? Thank you.
