    Keep competing and it doesn't happen anymore.

    Agreed. Experiance Experiance And More Experiance !
    Doesnt really happen for me because im a very relaxed person but the real challenge is the muscles and stamina.
    my first ever competition, after dominating someone from the bottom sweep then mount for a submission but because i was on the bottom holding his sleeves for so long i couldnt close my hands anymore. The ability to recover enough to do well in the rest of the competition is harder then keeping your emotions down ha

    Masterbate. It's basic physiology really.

    Then wash your hands.

    It also works in reverse. To raise your opponent's level of nervous tension and distract him, whisper into his ear the reason to your calmness.

    Rolling before hand sounds like a good idea. Provided there is an area provided.

    Adrenaline is a good thing that helps your body maximise its performance. It numbs pain, increases the heart rate and dilates the airways. All these improve performance. However, if you are not used to adrenaline it can numb a person and cause them to sieze up.

    You can never stop the adrenaline unless you enter competitions in which you have no care for the result. What you can do though is get your body used to adrenaline by putting yourself into stressful situations (like competitions) on a regular basis. Also take comfort in the fact that even world and olympic sports people can and do struggle controlling it even after years of competition.
