    and, ive never had any bjj teachings, except for some hapkido, and little bit of judo, and wrestling from what my friends have shown me. everytime ive wrestled, or grappled any of my friends, ive been able to make them tap, even ones that have wrestled all through highschool.

    anyways, my question is, should i enter? they have a beginner no gi division for people who have never competed. lol, i just want to see i badly id get owned. well not really, but how ill fair i guess.

    your thoughts??

    yeah go ahead and compete man.. but make sure you learn the rules, and get familiar with it.. you dont wanna lose out of ignorance. also tap when youre stuck, people crank stuff in competition

    Don't go in there thinking that you will win because you most likely will not. Go in there to learn.

    well, i lost.....no big surpirse there, but im not sad. some of the blue belts told me i did great for not training in bjj. i didnt get submitted, lost 5-2. when i rolled with the blues, they were surprised when i told them that i didnt train.

    all in all, i had a lot of fun and my interest for training has risen.
