good luck, a tip i must give you is stop by a fast food joint, or starbucks, and grab a handfull of honey packet.

the day of your match may require you to be there at 8, but you may not step on the mat till 3. i eat a bannana in the morning, and use honey packs a few times for the day.

Lost in double overtime, 2-0.

I was so ******* nervous I couldn't even move. I totally choked out there. *Shrug. Hopefully next time I will be less nervous because I am way better than how I performed saturday. Overall it was a good experience though.

nerves is what kills every fighter, what i do is bring a mp3 player, i do not listen to the hard core. i listen to my smooth happy music, it puts me into a world away from the fight (i would give examples, but i'm afarid you guys will make fun of me). if it is a long day, i will find a corner and go to sleep, my team wakes me up when they call my name.

if i watch the matches prior i get too excited and i will be drained when i step on the mat.

I know exactly what you mean. I think losing teaches a lot more than winning.

Almost exactly what happened to me a couple weeks ago at my first tournament! No overtime, but I got pointed 2-0. While standing I realized that I don't know s&*^ about what to do standing with a gi on. We only stand in no-gi class. It threw my game off horribly. I froze and other than a few attempts at a sweep, my opponent was in my guard the entire time.

I was disappointed, but I realized how I have to train prior to my next competition. When most people get really nervous, they go to what they know really well. I know my closed guard is safe, and that my sweeps are pretty good, so I think I defaulted to that game plan and didn't turn it up and try to get an armbar or triangle, or escape from the bottom.

Now, in class, I keep my guard open and force myself to go for submission from the bottom even if I'm pretty sure my opponent is going to pass. Then, when they do pass, I fight my ass off to get back into guard, sweep, or scramble. I have to say that in the weeks since competition I've gotten a lot better because of the changes I made.
