    Arkansas has never been known for its heavy Brazilian Jiu Jitsu scene. I haven't competed since October and I was hungry for a little hardware. Well, the closest thing we could find was a Hayastan tournament 8 hours away in Themiddleoffuckingnowhere, Kentucky. So off we went, 5 of us in a Saturn Ion. I arrived comfortably in the under 145 division, with little hope of there being girl competition.

    Well, good thing I didn't get my hopes up. Fuck a duck, and no advanced 145ers either. They mixed together the intermediate and advanced 160ers (it's okay, technically with time I'm an intermediate). First match I won pretty quickly with a triangle. Second match (finals, tiny tournament) I gave to my training partner, who has like 23094830298 silver medals but has never had a gold.

    So I did absolute. Since I "by default" won the 145 guys division they let me enter (div winners only). Worked guard but couldn't get anywhere...opened up for a sub, turtled to not get my guard pass and made a rookie mistake. I should have sat out immediately but I got nervous, stopped, and thought. He grabbed my neck, I knew to jump out the side and pass but my head was in the middle...the pressure was too good and I waited too long. And he guillotined me. Damnit.

    1-1

    Did the guy even attempt to tap in your first match? That sucks that you didn't have any fellow female competitors in your weight class. My friend that trains in Northern KY has the same problem.

    Are you going up to Arnold's this year? I went and tried to watch my other friend compete last year, but it was such a clusterfuck I missed his match. I'm not sure but I think my NKY friend will be competing there but I will ask her tomorrow. Also I think March 28th there is the Bluegrass BJJ Open in Louisville KY (http://bluegrass-bjj.com/register/map.php).

    No, he never tried to tap. Had he, I would have let go immediately. The ref didn't even notice, I just let go.

    Can't make it to the Arnold's. I have NO money. All my sponsors dropped off because of the economy. Fuck. Trying to figure out how I'm going to compete. I was thinking asking for donations but I'm scared I'd get made fun of more than helped.

    March 28th is the Pan Ams. I already have a plane ticket...no cash to enter or eat, but that can be figured out later. But thanks for the heads up! I'll pass it to my training partners.

    Man...that extra 20-30 lbs of muscle makes a bit of a difference, but worse is I get nervous and scared to open up.

    Cause they have enough chicks. You think I want this? NO. There's weight and gender divisions for a reason.

    no the funny thing is she always breaks even with guys. She should have known she was going to lose the next match she went in because she won the first haha

    You would embarrass me Hillary, no doubt.

    Hey you should be proud you did well. That sucks about your sponsors too, that must have put your moral down. Hey you're still young and will still have some good years left. I hope things get better :x:. You could always take the idea from Zack and Miri make a porno and capitalize on that market. You'd probably at least get a few thousand views from Ben.
