Hey UG,
I was wondering if anybody had any good suggestions for grappling tournaments that go to the New England area. I live in Providence,RI and am 0-3 in ammy MMA. All 3 fights I was taken down within the first 30 seconds and I made extremely stupid mistakes that caused me to lose the fight. Watching the videos I can point a bunch of things that I did wrong and know what I should have done. I need to strengthen my ground game and would like to test myself in multiple grappling tournaments before I fight again. I will be training at a Carlson Gracie school 2 days gi and 1 day no gi. I will also be training at a school for my stand up and no gi. Other than Naga, I don't know what other tournaments that I should be on the lookout for and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of good ones for someone to test themselves and gain valuable experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
