Mundials Day 3 & 4

Day 3

A bit boring really - a little jetlag to get over and then just chilled so Lisa was ready for the tournament.

Day 4

Jez is safe and sound. We met him at the Pyramid and he told us of his adventures. He's trained at a couple of clubs who've let him train for free. Gracie Academy was expensive, $40 for one session, but he tapped several of their blue belts out. The Machado Academy were very unwelcoming and kept asking him loads of questions so he didn't train with them.

Anyway the Mundials.

Lisa got drew against the Croatian power lifter in the quarter finals and took her to school. The girl was holding her at arms length to stop Lisa going for the takedown or throw so Lisa pulled off the sweetest flying armbar and got a massive cheer from the crowd. The girl tore out of it as Lisa tried to lock it on and Lisa took top and passed her guard and secured on for the points win.

The semi finals was a draw against American Elite fighter Samantha Faulhaber. This was a fight of attrition. The American jumped guard and clamped on. Lisa fought to pass continuously and her opponent had a very similar game to Lisa and kept recovering. It went like that for the first 5 minutes with no scoring. With one minute to go Samantha tried a sweep which Lisa defended. She then pulled Lisa into the triangle as she recovered base and Lisa defended it with a strong posture and pulling down on the knee. Lisa popped her head out and was passing to side when the whistle went. No score on the board and the referee signals advantage to the American for the submission attempt so Lisa lost by the advantage point.

Lisa won the Bronze medal at the Mundials. We drank Acai juice to celebrate.

Hope everyone is OK at home. We're hooking up with Jez tomorrow and going to Universal Studios together. We may go and watch the Brown and Black belts on Saturday so we'll keep you updated.
