So my tournament is in 2 days and here is the status so far. After todays workout i weighed in at 109. I will most likely weigh in at 110-112 on the day of the fights. I just turned 18 in may so i have to fight in the adult division and the lowest weightclass is 135.
My coaches know the person running the tournament and offered to pull strings to get me into Junior (15-17 years old) 115 (where i won the state championship in april) and i turned it down. I dont want to fight at 115, im too strong and i dont want easy competition, and most likely i could be facing kids i already faced at the last tournament and i dont want the easy road.
So i have decided to take on 2 weightclasses now. Junior 130 and adult 135. Im giving up alot of weight, and possibly some strength (which isnt likely and if i am it isnt much). But i want to be the best so im going to take the hard road and make myself the best.
So anyway updates about myself. Im weighing 109, ive broken my knuckle on my right hand sparring and pulled a muscle in my chest (it actually feels like its in my back and chest) and if i move wrong and aggrovate it i cant breath and its a sharp pain like im having a little heart attack.
So im giving up 25lbs, and fighting with 2 injuries. But on the upside i have a very strong mentallity and im very prepared for this tournament as far as the size differences. Fighting at 2 weightclasses is going to be rough because im not going to have much break and i have twice as many fights as everyone else.
So that is my update for the tournament, i will be leaving at 6:00am saturday morning heading to grassvalley CA to fight. I weigh in at 10:00am and fight by 1:00pm.
Wish me the best of luck, i will post the results sunday day or late saturday night.
