Lost my fight, Baaaawwwww!
So I went into my fight with the gameplan of not making any silly mistakes, but instead did the opposite and made a silly mistake. Started off well, caught him with some shots, blocked a high kick, hit him again , low kicked, picked him up, brought him to my corner, dropped him hard into his guard, postred up on one arm(Silly mistake) which he took and ambarred. :-(
Edit: I blame the loss completely on my forgetting to bring my Guy Fawkes mask with me to wear during my entrance.

Congrats for getting into the ring in the first place. I know I, many years ago, and I know my son (first karate tournie at around 11 years old got creamed 5 to 0 by a tough kid who soon started fighting in teen black belt division when he was still a brown - because he was wiping out all the other kids) both learned SO much from our early loses.
Bet you didn't do what my kid did: he kept a stiff upper lip when the head gear and gloves were pulled off, kept a stiff upper lip on the ride home. Then I could hear him in his room sobbing... But in a week he was talking about how much he'd learned and in a year or two he was throwing good combos and fast head high kicks and placing in competition.
I learned not to **** around, eventually. I think I had the skills to win for a long time before I started winning. It was mostly mental - self confidence and concentration was the key. In kyokushin they called it developing fighting spirit. Sparring tons helped.
Anyway, too bad you got caught with an arm bar. Next time...

Happens to everyone, man. Next time you'll remember your mask!“Most people do not do, but take refuge in theory and talk, thinking that they will become good in this way” -- Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, II.4

hey man what matters is that u stepped into the ring, and from the sounds of it, u were winning the stand up, or at least holding ur own. i mean the mistake u made has been made by countless pros, so i wouldnt worry too much about it.
if it makes u feel any better, i lost my only ametuer fight in 9 seconds to one punch that split me open and the doctor called it, i had to get 19 stiches. i was so embarrased i refuse to even try to get an ameteur fighter tag till i fight again.
random question they allow high kicks in ameteurs where u fight? cause they dont here in ohio and i really wish they did.
