Every year there is a National San Shou tournament held in Baltimore, Maryland and the coach has taken fighters from our gym to compete in it for many years. During our MMA conditioning class, coach decided to ask all the members present who was interested in going to this tournament. Of course I was one of many to raise my hand. It was not that I feel prepared currently to attend, but rather that I know I will have improved by the time the tournament rolls around and coach will take every step in preparing me for the tournament.
