    Currently I am preparing for my first tournament. In our class we spar seven minute rounds. However being a white belt I will only compete in four minute rounds. How close to the tournament do I switch from rolling seven minutes to four minutes? Out of ten or so guys competing from our gym, there are only three white belts. Thanks!

    I planned on doing that Monday, but was kinda curious to see what some of the people here say.

    Keep doing the long rounds. In a tournament, especially your first cardio will be a problem. With the adrenaline you will be breathing faster and you'll be using a 5th gear. You might even want to have a fresh partners rotate in every two minutes to simulate going beyond the exhaustion point.
