Kidspatula vs Roo: Results
Lost to decision.
This girl was tough. Her standup wasn't great, but her clinchwork was really solid and she, throughout the match, was able to control me in the clinch and toss me around. I kinda forgot about the fact that I haven't done any clinchwork in over 3 months (Doh!!). The clinchwork that I was totally not used to + the cold air (my nose and lungs were burning, like how it feels when you go for a run when it's really cold out) totally gassed me right away and it felt like I was fighting my own body the whole time. The fact that 100% of the crowd was cheering for my opponent didn't help either lol.
As it turns out (I learned this from one of the IKF officials there), Roo's 1-0 record is kind of a misstell. She's been doing muay thai since she was about 14 (she's 23 now) and she's been competing for years (the IKF guy saw her competing in the Worlds when she was 17 and has seen her fight a bunch of exhibitions.
It was a really good fight, though, and I'm glad to have been put up against a strong opponent. She was definitely worth the trip and I'll definitely get a rematch against her.
Kat murdered(Terminated) her opponent (duh), but very nicely. She worked some really solid boxing and was really pulling her punches on the girl. Marissa was just totally outmatched (both in size, but especially skill). At one point during the fight, Kat dropped her arms and just gave her a free shot (bitch!). The girl really couldn't hit very hard, though. She did put up a good fight, however, and never gave up despite how totally dominated she was. I give her major props for her heart.
Anyway, video will be posted once we get back to civilization (we're still in medieval england (Iowa)).Ranked #9 internationally at 118lbs by WIKBA http://www.womenkickboxing.com/wikba...rch%202009.htm

Congratulations to you both. At least you got a lot more out of this fight than the last one.

Sounds like a good fight. Going against stronger opponents will make you stronger. Good job Kid.

Well done Kid and Anna.
I'll be popping into my local boxing club to get some more lessons, so watch out Anna!
I imagine Anna (if by some chance I defeat Kid) will hit me so hard my brain will regenerate!

I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.

Congratulations to you both. Nice job, ladies.
Spatch: nice second fight. It is always a benefit to fighting someone a level up from you, sounds like you know what you can work on. And losing to decision is *way* better than laid out on the mat, sounds like you stuck it out.
Kat: kinda what I expected.....um, good job! Never give someone a free shot, you showboat!
Can't wait for the videos!

Yeah...you gotta learn to speak Promoter-speak.
But sounds like a great fight, though. As has already been said...you will learn more from this fight than the last one. SOlid work all around ladies!And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".
