I have the option of doing the IBJJF Dallas Open competition late this month or the NAGA competition in the middle of next month. Are there any major differences with how these comps are run that would make one a better option for a first time competitor? I know that with the Dallas Open there is no masters division for white belt so I will be competing with younger people but since I am going into this with just the goal of surviving as long as I can, I am not too worried about that.
Just wanted to know what other differences there might be with the different comps 🙂
Okay that is what I was looking for… my coach was pushing for as many people to register for the Dallas Open so I guess that makes the decision for me. I have only been to a couple of comps as a spectator and they were very very small ones so I didn’t have any real comparison.
