Last competition... at blue belt

So I had a blast competing at the submission arts United tournament this weekend. I did a little better than I expected. Finished first place in the lightweight division. I didn't spend much effort doing my fights. I have tried to use technique take keep impose my game. I was actually fresh after the second fight. it was also fun to encourage my teamates as well. I cannot say I have learned much by doing this competition. However it was pretty fun.

As training goes I realize technique actually matters more than strength.   however good grips are extremely necessary. I have actually started playing with the butterfly guard.  my guard retention is actually going up. It doesn't come is easy as my typical guard however it is pretty satisfying.
