My fight on video
First of all, thank you to all my partners in Budokan Castellón who helped me prepare for the fight, thanks to Pedro, David, Xufei and specially Sensei Josep Florido for coming with me and helping me on fight night.
Also, thanks to VFL for having me in this event.
I would also thank my sponsors, but...
Spatial awareness run (thanks Ramsey!).
Waiting for an opponent.
Moving my arms.
Thinking of the tactic.
Where are my gloves?
Well, the experience was amazing!
I got to fight in a cage, in a nice promotion, against a very strong guy and then got to walk home unharmed, sure of having given all I had inside, that was not much.
I gassed out too soon and could not play along very well.
But it doesn't matter. The other guy, Fabio Wellinton, was more experienced, stronger and did a better fight. He was a nice guy before and after the fight and that is important too.
Now, the fight:
Oh, yes, he won.
I had a chance of finishing the fight on the first round when I locked that kesa gatame, but could not finish it.
Well, next time!!
Now, time to get on the gi, return to my kata and learn from the experience to make my Karate grow stronger.
There is a Jion bunkai video in the works.
Soon. I promise.
