Competition Time: Grapplers, Don't Lose Your Heads/Don't Give Up

The Outlaw Josey Wales: "Now remember, if things look bad and it looks like you're not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. 'Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That's just the way it is."

No one can say it better than Clint, right?

Grapplers, many of you are competing in Pan American this weekend, and for that you should be commended. It's an awesome challenge for any grappler to step up and lay it on the line like that.

A teammate of mine told me just this morning that, win or lose, he always felt that absorbing the energy of the competition and facing the challenge always helped to elevate his game going forward. That's pretty damn cool.

So, train hard and rest up too, grapplers (I'll be doing the same). Good luck out there.
