    first in a long long time anyways.

    unfortunately there's no 185 weight class, so I've either got to drop 20lbs in two weeks to make the 170 class, or enter in the 200lb class. Shitty deal, but I'll deal with it.

    I'm scurred :noes:

    Hopefully I can get some knee pad/braces by then

    Isn't the "170" class 170-179?

    Usually for BJJ tourneys its a bracket of weight - not just a single weight.

    Sometimes it's easier to take on the bigger guys though as can be faster and more nimble.

    Go have fun.

    Just make sure there is a cap whatever weight class you are entering.

    That's what I learned at my first tournament.

    possibly, not too sure. This is the info on it that I got...

    so not too sure exactly, I guess I'll find out when I get there.

    I'll check out some local places, don't think I've ever seen them in stores but I dunno. Was gonna order some from Title, but I doubt I'd get them in time.

    nice man. just stick to your bread & butter and don't try to get fancy or try new stuff.

    not that you asked my advice or anything.
