whew :cry: survived the recently held ARPI torney selection for SEAG. Just been in FMA for 6m,onths, & an opportunity comes in for a great baptism, swooshh, swattt :woo: , a head strike , ekk i cannot move, been hit, 5 times 1st round, me 1pt, the head gear was not strapped properly, swooshh flew high when i was hit in the neck, until now its swollen :cry: , . 2nd round, again my opponent got 5 point from me, & me got 1 pt .. the after the game, my team mate told me i did fine for a newbie, coz, i fought a veteran & a former world champion :cry: , I think Ybanez is the name, phil team member. but its a great experience, I'll really cherish it, got a poster of the tourney & will frame it in my room. will tell my future son, well son, i was there, my opponent beat the hell out of me lol. kidding aside, the experience gives me more the drive to train hard & maybe could compete at the their level. Wil also try "creative anyo", the reggie sanchez guy is great. for the guys who gave me moral support, tips like sir pat, sir diego_vega & other guys, thanks... "I lost, but I survive!!" lol.
