With what you've learned so far, how much more confident would you be if you had to throw down with some random dude on the street?  :bandana:

I already had the boxing to be confident, but now yes I would destroy a random dude on the street assuming they had no training.

More important question....how many 5 year olds do you think you can beat up at one time now?

 

On a serious note, good for you. Sounds like fun and I’m sure it’s an excellent workout.

There is only one white belt who beats me more than I beat him. The dude is 260lbs and all muscle, quick and skilled. I beat most blue belts and yesterday my purple belt coach couldn't tap me nor me him.

Participated in my first tourney last Saturday going 3-1. I dominated during my three wins. Here are my sorry excuses as to why I lost my 4th match. 

1. I was on fight four while my opponent was on his first

2. I had just fought 5 minutes prior and all my fights went the distance. So I was exhausted. 

3. Within the first 30 seconds I had him in a guillotine, but I didn't get my arm all the way through his neck and he eventually slipped out.

4. Halfway through the match my shorts slipped down around my thighs (I had spats on so I wasn't flashing the crowd) but at that point, my legs were basically tied and I couldn't use them.

I had fun and brought home gold and silver for the gym.

Awesome, good for you!  Tourneys are where you move from dabbling in a martial art to competing in it. :thumbsup: 

How does it work that you were on your 4th match and the other guy on his first?  I can see one extra match because of byes but not 3.

I've competed in a bazillion TKD tourneys but those matches are 2 minutes each.  I watched my son at a BJJ tourney and 5 minutes is no joke; you need to be in good cardio to do that.  One or two folks puked on the mat.  Speaking of that son, he is back into it and I'm glad for him.

I participated in Gi and No-Gi. He only did No-Gi. I felt like he should have gone first but they made me and another guy fight first.

Puked? Jeez. And a whole 5 minutes? :shocking:

I would advise you to never try boxing.

Congrats!  I know there is a hella lot of work that goes into belt advancement in that style.  My son got back into it recently and is hoping to earn his blue belt soon.  :cheers:

Thanks Jerry. 340 hours of mat time. 2 tourneys with a record of 4-1 (2 golds) countless hours of study and working out. One major injury and countless small boo-boos. I expect I will need to double that for purple (hopefully no other major injuries).

Yeah, he goes consistently.  He had bulked up to 200+ pounds but realized that he was competing with some very large, strong guys, so he talked about shedding about 10 pounds or so for his latest tourney and compete down a class.  :thumbsup:

Smart I'm in the -215 category and plan to move to the -200 soon. There are pros and cons to both.

I think it depends on your natural body size.  He was unnaturally heavy at that weight, and I just don't think it is the same.  IMO find your natural weight and maybe go down one based on how close the boundary is.

True. I also find the smaller guys are faster and or lanky. Which causes it's own problems. Is he competing in Grappling industries, Fuji, NAGA?
