Antoine Pinardin gives us his emotions
The Open Adidas competition was held last 19 and 20 last October at the Dome of Villabon. Antoine Pinardin emerged victorious from the competition. He told us about his adventure during the two days of intensive competition.
"Late competition for my category of + 84kg, I go to weigh 15h 30. I warm up in the wake, and I'm called quickly enough, no delay on schedule.
Complicated entrance, I feel heavy, and I make a difficult first fight, despite the excellent coaching of my friend Yohann Bastienwho offered me the solutions on a platter.
I win in extremis with a leg technique at the end of the fight.
It is during the second round that I release myself, I find my usual sensations, and I will then win all other fights with eight points difference. (Maximum difference in karate, which can be declared winner of the fight before the time runs out.)
It was a good day at the Adidas Open, despite a difficult start.
Encouraging win in this first national competition of the season.
The second will be the Coupe de France, which will take place at the end of November. "
