I kicked his butt...

Ok, we have started having "1 point matches" and sometimes "3 point matches" in martial arts. Basically that is where you spar and try to make points by pretending to hit your opponent. You get so many points depending on where you hit them (although you really don't make contact). So today, I was sparring, and I totally creamed my opponent. Within 3 seconds of beginning the match I was called as winner (and he as loser)! I just sent a nice right punch to the face and did a successful pull back (completing the punch) and I got the point! I was mighty proud of myself. I had good eye contact, completed my punch, good form and I won. Does it matter to me that the kid was 8? Not really, I still creamed him. Then I got called out for nearly actually hitting my next opponent in the face. Ooops. I did not realize I was that close! Well, better luck next time. And did I mention that I have now bled for my sport? Yeah, I was sparring the other day and a teenager, WAY bigger than me, somehow ripped the skin on my pinky, and so, I have bled for my sport. I think it is a sign of how committed I am to it or something. So there is my martial arts update...still loving it and I am well on my way to my hands becoming lethal weapons. Sweet.
