    Default Your opinion

    I'm not sure if this would go here but I couldn't really find a better spot for it.
    I was online the other day and saw an add for pro and am fights so i decided to check it out because I was bored. Surfing I found that there were actually grappling competitions going on soon so I did my research and read a lot and found that I could compete.
    The only thing about this competition is besides from being a 4 hour drive from my house and single round elimination is that I can't compete in the novice or beginner divisions. I have to go to intermediate because it says wrestlers can't do those divisions.
    But my question was since I have only had one season of high school wrestling under my belt should I be able to actually do those divisions?
    What do you guys think I should do? I don't know much about BJJ or the other grappling styles just wrestling. I want to do this so I can put my name out there and start learning new styles for when I get older and get a fun experience. And it's only $30 dollars out of my pocket to pre-reg and I get a t-shirt. So it isn't hurting me too bad to go have a day of fun and to learn.

    Thanks for reading and if you have any good websites that give good BJJ, SAMBO, etc tips that would be great. Thanks guys!

    My advice is to find a club near you that does grappling or Ju-Jitsu and go to a few workouts before you go to a competition.
    Four hours is a long way to drive for the possibility of one match. And if you have only one year of wrestling and zero grappling, one and done seems like the most likely result.

    At least let someone do some joint locks on you beforehand, so you know if (and when) to tap and and don't get something broken.

    Good luck!

    Well that's the problem. There isn't a place around for me to do it near by. And I can't drive and the only place I know that's even close is a 45 minute drive. So I would go but that's whats happening.
