Schools with reps

I was wondering on your opinion about competing on the mat against schools with great reps for having excellent teams/fighters.

Granted, anybody can be beat, but if you get an inferiority complex, that can kill your chances.

How do you mentaly prepare for such a macth up?

Just remember that you are fighting the person not the school.

And yes, an inferirity complex will choke you out faster than a Rickson rear strangle with baby oil!

Preparation: train, train, train, give yourself a goal, make sure its realistic. Do not care if you win or lose [unless its an elimaination or title faight] meaing, sometimes the greatest education is experienced when you dsimply give yourself permission to 'experience'.
