Last hard class before the tournament. My weight’s fine, and at this point I’m trying to go into the tournament as confident as I can. I weighed 185 this morning, so I shouldn’t have any trouble making the weight. It wasn’t like I had to drop a lot… just a couple of pounds. No beer, no candy and an eye toward lean protein and I’m in good shape, weight wise.

I worked hard at class yesterday. Bing took us through a pretty good warmup, and then got us right into sparring. We started the first half hour standing and then the second half hour from the ground.

I got my ass handed to me by both Josh and Bing, but feel pretty good about my other matches. I think I’ll be okay in the tournament if I just stay calm and work my game.

Tonight’s family night. I think the Transformer’s sequel came in Netflix yesterday, so we’ll watch that. Weigh ins are up in Tukwilla tomorrow evening and then Saturday is the Revolution Tournament.

Oh, and Saturday night, win or lose, I’m drinking a beer and a medium rare ribeye.

    Hey friend as a guy that only recently competed in his first competition it helped me out alot when I read that its ok to be nervous. Just saying that to myself “its ok to be nervous” diminished it. Of course I lost but still had a blast. Best of luck to you.
