The black guy is my friend and training partner Matt, i was able to record him since he fought right after me.  I really need to bring someone to tape my fights next time.

Edit: sorry about the poor recording. I didn't have a seat and couldn't stand anywhere else frown

Break a leg!  His preferably. (Its just an expression, I'm told)

I actually tried to do that during the fight.  My opponent never bothered to check any of my kicks. After I landed the first leg kick hard, he looked at me in horror and I knew he didn't want to be there anymore.  
4 hour drive, 66 seconds in the ring, 6 legs kicks for a TKO in the first.  Dude was out of shape and he looked scared.  Felt bad. I think his whole family came out to watch him fight. Drove home. High fived the wife and drank a little vodka leftover from Harkonis's last visit.

Congratulations, Kato!  So did he verbally quit?

Also, did you taunt his moms and pops after you leapt to the top of the cage?

Not verbally, he just sat down and raised one hand signaling to the ref he was done.  

The family was in the second row and were booing me so I faced them, took out my mouthpiece and smiled smile

Luckily I ignored the voice in my head to take his soul

Lol, so I'm fighting this Saturday on less than two days notice.  4 guys from my gym were supposed to fight this weekend and 3 of them got injured this week.  Really bad luck for them, maybe they should stop sparring each other with chainsaws attached to their gloves slywink



Luckily I'm already at weight so this should work out.  I'm more worried about being an official corner man for my training partner.

Poster is up, fight is a little over  a month away and I have no idea who I'm fighting yet. Smaller promotions are a bit bad about getting a confirmed opponent.  I'm fine with it, the only thing I'm concerned with is if I'm fighting a southpaw or an orthodox.

I believe he's giving it his all for as long as he can, which is until a date he and the wife agreed upon since she's not too keen on the potential for injury.

Hark is correct, I have limited time before I call it quits. I'm undefeated so far in the amateur level but I'm not sure I can even get one pro fight at my age.  I already have to jump through a million hoops just to get cleared to fight by the commission, also because of my age.  However, with all that said I am going to go as hard and as far as I can for the next two years.  My next fight is late next month, and if I finish that one I will be closer to be getting considered for a low level pro fight.

What is a first round adrenaline dump and how does dehydration impact it?



Adrenaline is a double edged sword, it makes us stronger, faster, and more aware, it also impairs our critical thinking and saps our endurance. Its purpose is to give us 60 seconds of superhuman attack strength, or the speed to run and hide. 5 rounds of 3 minutes each of a sanctioned fight is outside the scope of the adrenaline’s original design specifications. 
So an adrenaline dump is nature’s way of preparing my body for fight or flight. After those 60 seconds, prepare to feel like a complete lethargic piece of shit.

I'm not entirely sure how dehydration factors into it, I manage it a hell of a lot better by mentally preparing myself.

Quote from: Knightshade Dragon on February 18, 2015, 07:13:48 PM

I'd stick with your current class.  Guys with longer reach are still gonna be leaner fighters.  They may have a little bit of a reach advantage, but you'll be at a more 'neutral' weight.  Cutting through dehydration will greatly add to your first-round adrenaline dump as your body needs to carry electrolytes through your system via water. 

Thanks Knightshade, that makes a hell of a lot of sense due to the fact that my first two fights I had a problem with that first round adrenaline dump.  I'll be sure to eat clean a few weeks before the fight and I should be ok.

Here's a couple new vids of me working on my kicks (high and low)

Good point ATB, but there is one big difference between pro and amateur weigh ins.  Pro fight weigh-ins take place a day before, while amateur weigh in on fight day just a few hours or even less before they fight.  
So for an amateur, a grueling weight cut is a recipe for disaster.

Edit: also when I'm at 150 I'm already super cut from being a bit dehydrated, but not enough to impact my fight performance
37  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Help/Advice for amateur fighting on: February 18, 2015, 06:49:15 PM
I may very well take you up on that, especially for my next fight Knightshade.  Yeah the Marines kept me nice and lean, but I needed to bulk up a little to be more competitive. 
I do have a weight class question. I'm 5 foot 7, walk around normally at 155-158. Last 2 weeks at my last fight camp I made weight easily at 150 and didn't even have to cut before weigh ins.  But at that point I'm at 7-8 percent body fat. Should I be cutting a few pounds more to make a lighter weight class?
At 150 I feel strong, but I'm usually fighting taller guys with the longer reach.
If I fight at 145, I'll be a big welterweight but that last 5 pounds is actually a hard cut for me because I would definitely be losing some muscle.
