    Hey guys and girls!

    Any Sherbros throwing their hat in the ring?

    I'm competing Friday I think, Blackbelt Masters 3 Middle.

    Be nice to maybe see a few of you all!

    Injured :(
    I had been focused on this tournament for a year. :(
    Good luck to all of you sherdogers though. Hope to see you on FloGrappling.

    I wish I could have gone this year. I think I'll still be a brown belt next year this time, it'll probably be my last serious tournament.

    How will you still be a brown belt? You've been training for a long time, and also have a a strong judo background.

    Is your coach particularly stingy? Do you think you're not training regularly enough? Just wondering, because I would have thought you'll get your promotion any day now.

    He's pretty stingy. Or more precisely, he only promotes once every 5-6 months (and he often forgets and it ends up being 7-8) and I've only once or twice seen him give more than one stripe (and actually each time he has he's given them to someone who's come to our school from a school that didn't use stripes, who had been the same belt for 2+ years). I'm only a two stripe brown belt, though I think we're due for promos soon. But I'll have to go through 4 stripes, I'm certain. It's funny, I've actually never lost to a brown belt in competition, starting when I was a purple. But since our local tournaments are all brown/black divisions it doesn't really matter to me all that much when I get it.

    I train 4-5x a week most weeks. I'm fighting sub only advanced no-gi absolute this weekend, that'll be an interesting test because it's the first open division I'll have competed in no-gi since I got my brown (I won my weight division advanced no-gi in the past, but the competition was a little thin, and took silver in absolute gi brown/black).

    I get it. Good luck!

    You should shoot for Pans to compete at brown belt then, just in case :)

    I'm only getting on an airplane to fight other old guys. Are the masters divisions at Pans very big?

    I was training hard this for this summertime's tournaments. I had my s&c right, my nutrition was coming along and my training was excellent. I then broke my wrist at the end of March. I wasn't clear to do any activity until mid June. I was discouraged and depressed. I am back training but I haven't been able to hit my rhythm. I need to get back to training everyday. I'm just a little depressed I think. Anyway that is my cry.

    Good luck Bros. I'll be hoping you guys do well this year

    Yes, only rivaled by master's worlds. Depends which age but any master's 1 or 2 should have min 3 and up to 5 matches at brown belt.

    Do all brown matches go on Thursday? Would love to see actual masters 4 and 5 matches.

    I'd be Masters 2. 3-4 is the perfect number.
