Osu SashaS yea I remember the kick that did it as I was coming in I was guarding the head and the Mawashi slipped in under my guard...
I had two more fights after that then a week later I fought in the All Japan Sato Juku Tournament with the broken rib I told no one about it so I could fight... thought while in Japan I had to do it all OSU don't regret it either Osu
This was my second fight in Japan, this fighters name is Chris he is a Kempo Ryu Karateka very strong and great technique, he is doing very well fighting in Sydney now he fights in the AKKA and the IFK knockdown tournaments I nicknamed him 'The Flying Filipino' because of his jumping spinning kicks LOL
My final fight in Japan.
This fight I really loved, my legs were black for days after this match I was going for the body alot in this match and took some heavy low inside kicks we fought to a draw then had an extention the matches were 3 minutes long.
