My first Grappling Tournament
 
This march I'm participating in my first grappling tournament. It's a grapplers quest tournament here in NJ and I'm currently signed up as a blue belt in the absolute division however I am very close to earning my purple belt. Regardless, do you guys have any tips on how to mentally and physically prepare myself in grappling guys that could be much faster or much bigger than me? Also, any tips on how to deal with your nerves beforehand?

You know I used to smoke before some of my wrestling matches in HS and you could say I was pretty successful haha it's definitely a possibility.

That was exactly my thought this new years. Think of it as my new years resolution to finally start competing.

Good thing about BJJ is you don't have to worry about size, BJJ is a discipline which was created exactly for that reason; to deal with people bigger than you. Just calm down and enjoy, I am sure you will have fun win or lose.

P.S You need to do way more tournaments ! :)
