Before anything, I give thanks to God, and to Him be All The Glory! This was my first time competing in over a year and also my first tournament at blue belt. I made a lot of mistakes but I'm glad I brought home the gold. Going to work on tuning up my game for the next one.
Normally I compete at a much lower weight but I decided to test myself and force myself to focus more on technique rather than strength and speed (also, I didn't want to cut weight this time lol). Much respect goes out to both my opponents who pushed me to give it my all, they were tough and I look forward to seeing and competing with them again in the future. Thanks to my coach and team at Up Top for always pushing me to be the best that I can be.
