Hello, thought I'd drop a few words to say I have lost my fighting/competion virginity a little earlier than I anticipated. I pencilled myself in for November but I competed on Sunday in the Derbyshire Open. I figured it would be a nice little comp. in which to cut my teeth as it were!! ( not literally
). Weighed in at 10 am in the <80 kg coloured belts kickboxing comp. and fought at 5 pm.
I got a bye in the first round which was good as it gave me a bead on things, I then fought a guy who was a blue belt ( I am Green at the moment having graded last Thursday ). It was one 2 minute round of semi-contact points and I got beat 6-5, I am really pleased with my performance as my oponent eventually went on to the final only to get narrowly beaten. So everyone was over the moon how things went.
I did see quite a number of newbies freeze and I was a little apprehensive but all I wanted was to give a good account of myself and not get hammered,( both points and physically wise
Onwards and upwards methinks, cheers.
