Go roll for a few hours a day and tell me it doesnt help your cardio at all. Seriously, I consider just flat out fighting (no round times or anything) for as long as you cna possibly push through it to be the best way to train for things liek this. And strength should be attended to, but not in a big fashion. BJJ is more about leverage than strength

Yes BJJ is more about leverage but who says the other guy whos twice as strong isnt using the same leverage, therefore, he still manages to outmuscles you.

I'm easily twice as strong as my trqainer shane, and I have about 45 pounds on him. I've submitted him once in about 40 fights. I mean, sure it's a big factor if the other guys huge (ala lesnar/mir) but nost of the time in my experience, if you get into a submission he's not going to power out of it if you do it fast enough and with enough technique. I'm not saying it's not going to happen and I'm not trying to troll or anything, I'm just saying in like 90% of cases, technique is much more powerful than sheer strength, so if I train more for technique than being big and strong. I usually do some meduim lifting and quite a bit of core training.

I want to do the best i can possibly do once the comp arrives. my other problem is finding people to just plain drill with.
My advice is pretty straightforward: conditioning and diet.

Work your mat technique on the mat, because it's really important to have an instructor watching that so that you are learning proper technique and not just reenforcing bad ones, especially at your level.

Instead, if you are concerned about the competition aspect of it, I would spend alot of time doing burpees and situps while watching TV, as well as doing plenty of stretching.

Also, make sure to attend all of the open mats that you can, and spend all of your sparring time working. No f*cking around.
