Off Topic: Do You Like Kickboxing?

In addition to the fact that its simply the offseason, one of the reasons things have been a bit slow around here was because I was preparing for my first kickboxing fight. I spent three weeks in Thailand and came back to the States only last week. My fight was last Saturday and it was unforgettable. After training for almost 2 years, I was a big test and a huge relief to finally test myself in my first official fight.

The entire event was sanctioned by the California State Athletic Commission, and as a result I now have an official amateur record of 1-0. There were 15 total bouts that night, and my fight was voted "Fight Of The Night." I received gifts and sponsorships valued at around $800 dollars, but the best part of the night was walking away unhurt and a winner!
