I started my training journey about a year ago at a local traditional jujitsu gym. I went there for three months until I ran out of money. My buddies and I continued out training by setting up shop in his basement. We train 3-5 days, with a lot of rolling, and some drilling. Our resources include BJ Penns books(book of knowledge and the closed guard), along with Roy Dean's videos and maia's videos. We were planning on entering some tournements at the end of the year to see where we are as a group. So my question arises that is this too soon? I was not worried at first as most tournaments have beginner divisons. But after looking over the rules, I would be in the intermediate division because I wrestled in high school. I wasn't that good I made it to districts in NE ohio D3, but that was back in 04. So should I wait until the next summer, or just go for it? Any advice is greatly appreciated, also is the difference between the divisions that great?
