I competed in them quite a lot for fun in my youth, but it's been a while. I'm naturally small (which I perhaps falsely believe makes staying in shape easier) and used to be pretty good, but as I said -- it's been a while. Do you guys have any exploits to the layman tournaments? Do you find that a certain move works, or that people tend towards vulnerability in a certain area? With limited training time, do I focus on strength or cardio? Or knowledge? Any new grappling knowledge that flat out didn't exist ten years ago? I'm asking ten million questions but I'd rather ask you guys first than spend time browsing what the Man has to say about all this.
What are your best recommendations for taking advantage of people at a low-level grappling tournament?
