Don't get me wrong, I am very excited to have received my Purple Belt but, with it comes a whole new level of competition, a new level of expectations and a new level of the pressure (I put on myself). As many of you know I struggle with performance anxiety. I do how-ever push through this and compete anyway. I keep hoping a day will come that I feel excited and at ease heading on to the mats but, as of yet, this has not happened.
On another note, time to get healthy! Eat, sleep and train in tournament mode! Time to push your training partners and vice versa. Looking forward to a great 2014 Tournament Season!
See ya on the mats!
