Tournaments 2012 Pt1

Sunday was the first tournament of the year for team Evo and we rocked it. Lucy and I ended up fighting each other in both categories. In points we ended 11 – 4 to Lucy, but frankly, she is more experienced and longer limbed than me, so frankly i’m perfectly happy with that. I just didn’t want to walk off the mats with 0 points. The ref though deeply annoying. when he had women to ref he was yapping at them/us all the way through, didn’t do it the men. I can only assume he doesn’t take women kickboxing seriously, we were both pretty much ready to punch him, but I believe Chief has put in a comment about the reffing to the organisers, so that will do.

In light con we had a great fight, got called on contact levels and the feedback from my coach was that if i’d been a little more aggressive I might have had her. She took me out of it in the end with a series of hard jabs dropped across the bridge of my nose, nothing slows you down like having your head snapped back. Great fun.

first tournament ever i came second in a class of two and was slightly embarrassed by having a trophy, it felt as though I got it for turning up. This time I feel I earned them by fighting. See how I go in Brum, expecting to get pummelled at the Wako’s but it’ll be a hell of an experience. 🙂
