USA Judo’s Dallas Invitational and President’s Cup Update #1

USA Judo’s Dallas Invitational and President’s Cup Update #1


What’s up guys, Preston here with another
episode of Grappler Going Abroad. As you can
tell, the scenery is a little bit different
than it normally is. I’m in Dallas right now
for the Dallas Invitational and President’s
Cup Judo tournaments at the Irving Convention
Center. Today has been pretty hectic, I’ve
been up since like 3:30 this morning. I had
my flight at 5:20. I just landed probably
a little less than an hour ago. So, it’s been
a pretty long day already and I got weigh
ins at 4:00. So, I can’t really eat anything
until then because god forbid I eat something
and miss weight. Then I’m here for nothing,
then I’m here as a spectator rather than a
competitor. Today I just wanted to give you
an update on my trip, what I’m doing. I don’t
have a whole lot to say today. So for those
of you guys that don’t compete regularly in
Judo, this is an annual event. It’s always
the Dallas Invitational and the President’s
Cup in the same weekend. I think the past
two years it’s been here at the Irving Convention
Center, they use to have it somewhere else,
but I believe USA Judo got a good deal on
the venue. So they want to keep hosting it
here every year, same thing with the Senior
Nationals. So I’m probably going to be back
here again probably next year for Senior Nationals.
It’s a pretty nice venue, they have, I think,
4 mats out, so theres going to be a lot of
matches going on simultaneously. So, for this
week’s episode, it’s just going to be me talking
about the competition, next week I’m going
to include some competition footage let you
guys know how I did, because I’m fighting
at both tournaments at -90 kg. So I’m going
to have a pretty busy weekend, so I just want
to give you guys a video, an update about
what’s going on so you guys aren’t freaking
out if I don’t post something. But besides
that, that’s all I got for you guys today,
please subscribe to keep up with what I’m
doing in Dallas, how I did in my competitions,
for future competitions, Judo stuff. If you
like this video, please like, share, and comment
on it. Again, one more time for emphasis,
please subscribe. But yeah, that’s all I got
for you guys today. My name is Preston and
this has been Grappler Going Abroad.
