went to my first tournament on saturday, (desertQuest bjj/submission grappling in phoenix) i was all nervous/psyched up for weeks before and then when i got there i had to wrestle one of the team's coaches in the first round, who of course dominated me. anyway, it was first round elimination so that was it for me. the guy went on to easily win first place. i felt mostly just frustrated because i went to the tournament to learn what areas i was solid in, and what areas i need to work on and where i was skill level, but i didn't feel like i learned much of anything. now im just going to train harder though come monday.
