I had not been in competetion for 25 years and my comeback was the 2008 North American Championship in New Jersey. At 51 I was eager to represent and excited to be "back in the game". While I did not win, I held my opponent who was younger and from a Gracie studio to half the match, aside from getting the first hold on him, a headlock.
I got kudos from his camp and my confidence meter skyrocketed. I love Grappler's Quest events!!!
