Re: My first fight
I agree with the guys who said "have fun".
I know it sounds counterproductive when you're in a tense battle situation.
But in my first fight, one of my trainers told me to do exactly that, "just have fun".
And that totally put my mind at ease, cuz I knew - everyone I spar with at my gym is bigger and badder than the guy I was about to fight. So I knew I wasn't gonna come across anything worth being nervous about.
And guess what, it totally worked. I was calm, the guy tried to murder me in the first 30 seconds of the fight. Then as the fight wore on, he gassed - I turned it up, and I won a UD,
Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
