Competition in Bury St.Edmunds December 2012 – the results

Another good result for CARISMA at the CKA competition in Bury St.Edmunds yesterday:

  • Phil Richardson managed to easily control his opponent throughout the three rounds and secured a clear victory.
  • Alan Brand found a shorter and aggressive opponent that neatly won the first round. Alan managed to ramp up his strategy and aggressiveness scoring with a few kicks  and increasing pressure from his upper body recovering the situation and winning.
  • Felix Schmitten, in a rematch with the same opponent, lost this time by a small and nearly arguable fraction.
  •  Simone Masiero, at his first fight, lost against a much taller and aggressive opponent; however he managed to fend off many of his attacks and, given a bit more experience he could have turn the result in his favour.

Once more a demonstration that hard work and preparation is paying back and any determined person can actually learn how to fight and to win.
