    Adopting a competitive mentality

    Great question Ivan, and agree with all the answers above. That sort of mentality just isn't necessary for success in competing.

    Anyone do weight training on top of MA?

    Yep, been lifting more years than I've been doing martial arts. Started off with many years of serious bodybuilding style training, between 3 and 5 days a week. Nowadays just 2 days a week, to maintain and build a little strength and muscle mass, balance out the body, and mainly out of just the...

    Should people post why they disagree

    I'd personally love a "your post evoked within me a sense of pensive reflectiveness of which I am brought through an inquisitive mood and an earnest journey of curiosity and state of wonderment and awe for the rest of the day..." emoji reaction. ---> ?

    Footage of me in the London IBJJF Internationals

    Yeah oh for sure. I think the psychological aspect plays a huge part in that too. The more you expose yourself to that environment and pressure the more familiar you become with it, and your body doesn't waste as much energy through unnecessary tension. And also there would be less nervous...
