31.12.2018 / 2nd meeting of CYT
First sparring competition experience of our "blue" junior female contestantWhat was my first sparring experience like?
As well as many of my friends I took part in traditional competition for youths in Nymburk.
This time, though, it was quite different than usual for I underwent sparring contest for my first time.
When practicing at training class it feels that you are prepared a bit. When I stepped in the ring the nervousness overwhelmed me and it was difficult to stay still. At the moment I was gestured to start all of my training experiences vanished. I was able only to focus on defending myself against my opponent´s attacks and simultaneously return some blows. I was even ignoring my coach which turned out as the best tactic.
Over all received blows I enjoyed the combats and they were my great experiences and motivation to improve.
