    First contest for 2 years

    Post by Steve Leadbeater on Sun Mar 24, 2013 9:19 pm

    I have just returned from my first tournament in 2 years
    ............wow !!.......a great day out.

    Lost the first fight in less than 20 seconds by stupidly
    walking onto a perfectly timed Deashi Harai. Shocked

    Won the second fight inside 10 seconds with a Taiotoshi. Very Happy

    Lost the third fight due to cramp in right leg........
    started to turn in for a L/H Taiotoshi, as I moved into position
    my right leg gave a twinge of cramp, and in that split second
    of hesitation my opponent took me down with a nice taniotoshi
    for a Waza ari, then held me down with Kesagatame, as I turned in
    and attempted to bridge to lift and roll him the cramp hit and
    ran from my right side gluteus maximus to my heel.........AGONY
    and an Ippon for my opponent. What a Face

    I won this Division 3 years ago, but I guess you can't win everything.

    Bruce Fagin and his team put on a marvelous tournament as usual, and I am glad I was part of it as it gave me the opportunity to catch up with some old friends and renew aquaintances, and gain some new friends too. cheers

    good on you. I've heard about "the agony of de feet" just not the agony of de butt.

    So, does this mean you're back, going to compete regular like? Gonna see you at the World Masters/Veterans?
