I cut down to 68KGs (yay because I got there)
It ended up being open weight as there was only enough girls for one lot of people.
It was set up as a round robin (I was hoping for 5 fights but only got 4.)
I felt good in my first fight and managed to keep her in my guard for a while then we stood up again. When she took me down I landed wrong, was vaguely slammed or something and I stopped the fight. Luckily it was okay afterwards and I could continue on competing.
The second round was with this tiny girl (she was 54 kilos and she felt so small) I managed to get the take down but she was so amazingly talented perfect technique I was actually honoured to get to roll with her. She got into mount (and showed a spectator one of my weaknesses when in someones guard which I got taught afterwards what I was doing wrong.) she got an arm bar and it was just so amazing how tight she kept everything and how well she rolled.
There was a long wait after these two fights and I kind of got a little bored sitting around (but I did get to watch two amazing ladies compete in the purple belt division) but sitting around for so long was a bit annoying.
My third fight I got triangled and I was talking to a guy last night and realised why, she pulled one arm and got it really tight and thats all I could focus on. I really need to work on drilling guard pass because I didn’t even attempt to get out of her guard. This fight was over pretty quickly and whilst my brain knew what I should do my body just didn’t do it quick enough.
My last fight I pulled guard and did the sweep that I got swept by in the first round. I got mount and got a really good cross collar grip but she swept me back. Luckily I held onto my grip really tight and I tried to sweep her again but she wouldn’t budge. I got my other hand in her collar and she wouldn’t tap so I kept tightening the choke and then she started gagging and I was a little scared she wouldn’t tap.
All in all I was happy and realised I really need to start playing top. the girls were amazing and I learnt so much! I also rolled with one of the purple belts who made me realise where I have a lot of holes and was very helpful. I need to start training more, drilling more, and trying new things out of my comfort zone.
