I have been preparing a friend for competition and got a wild idea...
As it is really nice and important to get to spar with guys clearly above your skill level, why not enter a competition clearly above your skill level? ....Just to learn! I know this could not usually be done in BJJ with belt levels unless your purple and they've combined purple, brown and black for example, but in ADCC trials or grapplers quest this might work.
I will definetly sign up to some pro-division tourney at some point to get my ass kicked! :). Go against some Jeff Glover in the first round etc..
As you see, I am not the first to go compete even when completely outclassed:
