This weekend I both volunteered and competed at the Byron Bay International Open (2* rating).
It was a really fun experience to see the set up and get to know the faces and the hard work that goes into creating a BJJ comp. I saw work going into things I’d never even considered before and it made me appreciate competing in it even more.
I worked on the point keeping table for the kids brackets, got ready, warmed up and headed to my mat. I had straight finals for both Gi and No Gi brackets (Female, Novice, 56kg) against a great opponent whom I really respect. I felt confident in my movement and happy with my rolls and I got to take a few things back to the dojo to work on for the next comp. what more could I ask for?
