Been rolling for about 5 months now, having to take about a month off due to injury. I would love to compete eventually in the future but am unsure when I should start thinking about it. Is it worth it to compete at white or should I wait till I make it to blue?

100% worth competing at white. Do as many as you can TBH. If you like the experience of the tourney you’ll learn how to “find another gear” or whatever you want to call it. You also are forced to get better due to the element of surprise. After 5 months you probably have a decent idea which techniques each of your main training partners are going to try. Tourney kills that and you get better from it. Jump in and tell us how it goes!

Thanks for the advice man. Much appreciated.

Also I just got my first rash guard set. Fuck I hate how snug my shirt is. Also what’s the etiquette on bottoms. Do I wear underwear with them, shorts overtop, or do I just rock my dong imprint all around the gym?

I hardly no-gi but I wear shorts over my tights but you do you.
Good on you for getting a rash guard. I’ve rolled with guys in a t-shirt and had the displeasure of inhaling a sweaty shirt.

I’ve been gym shorts and shirting it for months. I do have a gi on probably 80 percent of the time
