Yesterday I competed in my first kickboxing and grappling tournament. Although I got my ass kicked in it, I am still some what happy with my results. It’s a weird feeling to have someone swinging at you and trying to remain calm and for the most part I did it. Other than some sore shins from blocking some kicks I was fine. I got defeated in the first round in the kickboxing division but the guy who beat me went on to win so that was reassuring in a way. In the grappling division I again was defeated in the first round but it was from a guy who I’ve grappled with before. We tend to trade submissions meaning that he wins one, I win one, etc… so once again it was kind of nice to know that.
