Is this what it feels like to lose consciousness? Feels like falling asleep to me. Maybe I should just let it happen naturally, I’m tired anyway. My vision is blurry and I feel a bit lightheaded too. I can feel the grip tightening.
A second wind hits my chest and travels up to my head. I grab the arm firmly locked around my neck and pull with all my strength.
I can’t go down. I won’t go down.
My opponent fights back but it’s too late. I’m able slip my hand in to get a good grip on his arm. That’s all I need. I yank hard and free my neck. In a split second, I position my leg between his and toss him over with all the force I can muster. He falls on his back with a thud and lets out a grunt.
Air! It rushes down to my lung freely. I stumble back a little and take a defensive posture. My opponent is already up as if nothing happened to him. Doesn’t he tire at all? He smirks at me. I can’t help but return it.
We’re both enjoying ourselves.
But at the end of night, one of us is going down.
To be continued…
