Extreme Grappling Open EGO

Hey guys I decided a couple of weeks ago to go for this tournament. On two months notice I've started training. Short notice but variety is good and I'd hate not to go for a personal achievement. My cardio isn't so great but I'll get it there, and the ground is my weak point. So you grappler guys give me advice and tips for tournament competition. Thanks a lot and here's a link to the poster of the tournament. (if you can't read it just download adobe acrobat, it's free.

what is cool is how they have nogi divisions broken down by time in training, i guess that might help cut back on the sandbaggers... if they are honest about time in training...

it is more expensive that judo, but it is close to the same price as your adverage bjj entry.

tips i can give

get as much mat time from now till then.
i would drink 2 liters of water every day(makes me pee every hour).
i would call up and find out "ball park" what time your up being rooster are you up first or if your nogi only will it start afternoon, what ever, get ideal time to try to get something to eat, but do eat light. night before i would carb. load.. day of, banana's and cliff bars... keep it light, during the day of i slow down my water intake so i don't throw it up on the mat.
bring a walkman with soothing music, to help keep you mind off the mat, until it is time, when my division is called to the mat is when i come out from the locker room(if i see the mat i get tried due to adrenaline fatigue.
do warm up, if you don't it slows you and your weaker.
all the yelling and stuff when your out there do not listen to anything but your coach.
if you can't understand the ref. keep going till they physically stop you(when i first started judo i had this problem, when they would call points, i thought they wanted me to stop..... my coach to =ld me to attack until they pulled me off or my coach told me to stop.)
your first time in a tournament go have fun.

once i cut weight and all i wanted to do was sleep all the time, i felt real lazy, i felt like i was sick, every time on the mat i felt real tired. and everyone knows one minute of fight time equals one hour of all out at the dojo

I'm in the 0-6 months exp bracket. I'm not too good on the ground but I do want to win first very badly. I have to start working out hard core, mostly cardiovascular.

Um I don't have a coach, lol. But who cares?

I suggest the few moves you need to find out how to do are these ones:

Kimura
Gulliotine
Rear Naked Choke
Foot lock
Arm Bar and triangle are great but they need alot of practice.
