I just started BJJ about a month ago and really like the training. I have a couple of questions about competing (gi tournaments). First, how long should I train before I know enough to compete at the novice level? Second, what are some good events in NC, SC, or GA that have novice divisions? By the way, I am 35 yrs old so I have no illusions of one day becoming a pro or anything. I just want to test my skills and think that competing would be a great way to improve.
