for those wondering where I’ve been;
I competed in the TKD national championships for the first time and managed bronze! crazy to think I’m now the third best fighter in my category in the UK now.
I had to drop out of the fight for the silver because of an injury I took my foot in the first round. Had an xray and the general consensus is that I displaced a tendon in my foot. I also got a lovely whack to my eye which is swelling up and turning black beautifully this week.
I have never fought *pure* TKD before and I only started training pure TKD this summer. I come from boxing and I normally box at 155-160lbs - when I fought in these championships, I was at 138lbs. It’s the lightest I’ve ever been and losing the weight was horrible.
Back to regular posting now though! training is over and I’m back to studying, taking a short break from fighting.
