May 24th: I've signed up for a Jiu Jitsu competetion - update! I TOOK SILVER can't believe it
Inspiried by @Ruth Ann Reyes who competes in pool tournaments...
I'm not sure of my sanity at this point but I signed up for a BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) competetion to be held this Sunday. So far it does not look like I have a 'match' or basically someone to roll with. But last minute sign ups are a thing. And just for the record I am NOT 154 lbs. A sensative subject here... But I'm not 141 lbs either, so have to go into the bigger grils arena. LOL.
You may remember I started martial arts when in Colorado and I earned a purple belt in Shotokan. But when I moved to PR there wasn't that style so I started over again as a white belt at the closest gym (not a good way to choose a sport BTW) which happened to train BJJ. BJJ is a totlly different system - like completely different.
Here is the website for the tournament https://smoothcomp.com/en/event/11653
Here is the YouTube channel where I think it will be live streamed. (gulp)
