I am a complete beginner to BJJ/sub wrestling-having only a few (about a month) formal classes, several seminar experiences, and a decent amount of but sporatic "in dojo" practice (my karate dojo, not bjj dojo) of basics.
I am toying with the idea of entering a grappling tournament just to challenge myself and jump start my grappling practice. I am not deluded to think I will have any success and I do not mind tapping at all. I have no ego when it comes to that. I would definitely be in a beginner's division...I just want to see where I stand...
Is this a bad idea? Can any good come from it?
Any thoughts are appreciated!
