Competing can be stressful. But do you know what's even more stressful? Figuring out where and when to compete... and trying to cram it into your already busy work and social calendar.
However, it's the planning part that will eventually make the competing part less stressful. Trust me, I know.
If you're already an avid competitor, you know how it goes... you set out at the beginning of the year with all these goals, but then, somehow, things don't happen as you had envisioned. If you're not already a regular competitor, maybe you don't even have the first idea about where to start in planning your jiu-jitsu competition season.
