    Dunno, I have conflicting opinions about this, I want you to enter because the experience is great and the only way to know where you stand is to compete against others. But then again, you've only been training for two months and a lot of the guys you will go against will probably have had a years worth of training or even more if they're sand bagging.

    If you feel like you're ready for it, then go for it and just have fun.

    Sure, why not.

    I'm hoping to enter my first tourney asap.. nogi. I have no interest in competing with the gi.

    So much harder to get out of submissions, getting a foot caught in the back of their gi, getting choked with the gi lapel, etc. etc.

    I'm definitely not nearly as skilled with the gi, I agree it's harder. That's one reason.

    the divisions are a lot bigger usually.. and the average guy is more skilled. you dont get ex-wrestlers yada yada
