As difficult as it may be once the adrenaline starts pumping, keep an ear out for your corner, they see everything you can't.

Keep cool and calm, take your time, once a fight starts, it gets incredibly fast, and you may start to panic to do things.

One thing I noticed in my first no-holds barred fight was that I literally forgot every technique, and i mean everything, it took me a couple of minutes to realise what I was doing.

Make sure you know the rules beforehand, last comp I went to my mate was disqualified. Obviously train hard, ease up a few days before, rest eat and drink well. Go and enjoy it. Good luck.

Well for me it doesn't really go that fast once the match is on the ground, and then its all up to you to recall your training and submit your opponent.

Make sure you relax, but not to the point that you don't do anything in the beginning. Take it to him from the get go (especially if you have good take-downs). Also look at the matches before and after yours to get a feel for the guys you'll go against later (after you win the first one!!).
Your toughest opponent is always your best effort.
