My First Challenge!!!


It has been slightly over a month since I have started my quest to the cage and one of my training partners just told me, "Get as much experience as possible by competing in grappling tournaments." So with out thinking twice about it, I am entering in my first grappling tournament on September 22, 2007. I will be competing in the 145-160 weight class, so I have some pounds I need to lose. I am currently weighing 174, so 14 pounds isn't too bad in a little over a month. I am going to treat this as if I were training for a real full on contact fight so you will be able to read week by week how my training goes and what I will be doing to get ready for the tournament. Here is the link to the tournament website, so you can go on the site and check it out. (http://hayastangrapplingchallenge.com/) I am pumped and ready to kick some butt. As I am training for this tournament, I will need many words of encouragement, so leave as many posts as you'd like. Thanks everyone!

Hey man I would like to come check you out that weekend. I actually think we were planning on coming down that weeked anyway. I think Bek has a LesMills seminar in Charlotte that weekend so that would be awesome. Good luck with the diet.
