    I've got the BCCMA nationals coming up this Sunday, full contact novices -65kg (currently 1-1) and also giving the wrestling a go! I won't be posting between now and then, but been training fairly hard and feeling good! See you on the other side!

    Out of the two fighters in my category, I was the second best ;) Got stopped in the first round, TKO for a nosebleed that didn't stop in time. Was definitely being outclassed, haven't actually been training properly in about a year, just been doing some sparring in the last couple of weeks, so was just looking for a way to get back into it. Had a good time, and hopefully there's going to be a class on a night I'm not working so I'll be back training soon!

    Shuai Jiao:
    British lightweight champion! Would have won by default, but was wanted to fight somebody, as I'd never actually done it before, and it wouldn't seem right to accept a medal. One of Sanshou UK's guys came up, he had about 5kg on me, and like me hadn't wrestled this style before. There was a bit of banter about TJJ vs BJJ, as those are our respective grappling styles. Had a bit of time to recover from the bleeding, then it was on! He seemed to have more strength than me in the first round, scoring a couple of area pushes and takedowns. Got a second wind in round two, after getting a single, and pulled it back with some takedowns. Need to work on my grips, and my basing, but overall quite happy, and will look to compete again!

    Videos will be up soon I'm hoping! Thanks for the support!
