A quick update
Hi all as I previously mentioned in an earlier blog I would be competing at the Dutch open which was held on the 17-18 march. I feel that I competed very well as I fought in category that I would not usually have fought in this was due to their being too many people from the same club as me fighting that same weight (This includes my brother Nishaan). Fighting the weight above came across as quite a challenge as I was the smallest competitor in both weight and height in the category however I managed to over come this on the day thanks to my coach Brian Green. The first fight I had was against TUGAY INGÜN from Germany this fight was over very quickly as he did not show up. The next fight was against REDOUAN EL BOULAHIANI from the Netherlands this was a tough fight with the opponent being bigger than me but my coach helped me overcome this obstacle resulting in me beating him 13-1 which I was very happy about. Then unfortunately I suffered a quart final defeat from GB national team player Jamie Abley who beat me 5-0 and then went to a straight final and took gold from Azerbaijan national team. I was devastated as I came so far through the competition and just missed out of the medal zone. Overall the whole experience was fantastic I had alot of fun being out there with my team mates and look forward to doing it again.
