First match was won by one advantage against the blue belt. This was interesting, we spent half the match dancing after getting tapped in the forehead as an attempted distraction. She was determined.
Second match was lost by two points. I looked at the scoreboard with less than a minute left in the match and actually thought I was up on points so I just held out, but I should have fought a little harder at the end. It also looks like two points were awarded to green when they should have been awarded to red, me. I hate that arm triangle choke.
It was a long day, we went up early in the morning to watch the kid's and teen's matches. I found out when I got there that they had not only paired the Women's white and blue belts together, but that all the Women's belts were fighting together.
After the kids/teens we waited a good 8 hours or more before any of the adult BJJ matches started. Stepped outside for about an hour and did a kettlebell workout on the sidewalk to kill some time, get the heart rate up, and get the jitters out. I didn't compete until after 8:30 at night, so I was getting sleepy and low on energy from eating nothing but protein bars and trail mix all day. Last year I was nervous before my match, this year I felt great. I was pretty pleased with the effort I put forth in my first two matches. I think I could have performed a little better on the third match.
Five weeks until the next tournament.
