|Waiting. And waiting some more.|
|Isaiah and Kirk decked out for sparring|
Then, in the second round he fought against the best kid in his age division, and got the wind knocked out of him. He was pretty upset, but his instructor got him psyched up to go back in, and Isaiah did score a point against him. He was pretty thoroughly beaten mentally, though, and felt pretty upset afterward. He didn't even want to go back in to watch the rest to see who won. We were really proud of him for doing as well as he did, especially not giving up after getting kicked in the chest. And we're hoping that the competition will help him as he continues to work and grow.
