My 2nd tournament - on my own this time. Reflecting on the day, it's better to have a partner that you can warm up with prior to a fight.

I went in cold against a heavyweight black-belt for my semi contact fight. I didn't find any rhythm or use my speed, and was rattled a bit by his heavy hitting. Still, as I'd volunteered to move up a category to give him a fight I had earned the 2nd place medal.

Semi-Contact KickBoxing

1st place?! Yes, after many hours of killing time (we arrived just before 10am) there was a couple of quick bursts of energy around 2.30pm to beat a guy that had travelled down from Edinburgh, and then another local lad in the final. The first match was closest - a backfist won it in the last few seconds to make the score 6-5. The final was a more convincing victory at 10-0. I fought as a 'green belt', which is classed as a junior category vs. the black belts. Check out the videos below for each fight...
