I imagine the most likely scenario is getting a cease and desist notice
You guys are aware you have to win a regional qualifying tourney to get into the IKF world championships right? Lucky for you the qualifying is in Memphis.
No, that's just for seeding. The IKF officials at the event (and the IKF website) both say that you do not need to qualify at regionals to enter, in fact, the IKF officials said you'll probably get more fights at Worlds if you DONT seed.
Though regardless, i am already in touch with the guy that runs the regionals, we might do them, might not. Not sure yet.
Edit: Nvm, rules were changed back, you're right.
Thats what the man said. Though you do have to pay a fee to the regional promoter if you miss the regionals.
Yeah I just remember the big deal last year was that you had to here, but I guess people didn't like the idea. I know most people have hard times finding people to fight at regionals so they probably just did away with it.
Damn, I was finally able to watch Kid's fight. I don't have much to contribute that the others haven't already touched on in great detail but I will say that her fatigue was very evident about halfway through the clip. Also, it looked to me like Roo had a size advantage.
Thanks for sharing the vid, Kid. As always I enjoyed watching.
EDIT: Was finally able to watch Anna's video too. Anna, that was some sweet head movement. One guy I know has major problems with implementing head movement. I tell him to move his head but his head movement is way too small. I'll show him your clip to give him a demonstration of how a person should move their head so as not to get pounded.

All things considered, you did really well. I think you won the first round, but as you said, the clinching got the better of you, in the later rounds.
You might want to talk to your coach about how to neutralize your opponent in the clinch, if he hasn't already taught you that. Either a shin across your opponent's waist, or shoving them backwards while you have your thigh between their legs, is usually enough to tie them up, to prevent them from kneeing you any further. That's a good technique to use, when you're gassed.

A few months ago, my clinch was the strongest part of my game. I was REALLY good at staying out of the clinch and controlling a person's head in my own clinch, and against taller opponents I was very good at getting my hips in and getting the underhooks to nuetralize the clinch. I was actually going in to this fight expecting to dominate with my clinch work, but having not practiced it in months and I totally lost it.
