First match of our newest sign-up, petite warrior, Katniss (5′ 7″, 110 lb), is a competitive mixed wrestling encounter against Ales (5′ 8″, 120 lb). Katniss is the smallest girl that we’ve ever featured, so is Ales the smallest man we’ve filmed so far. They are closely matched size-wise, and both of them are amateurs to wrestling. Katniss’ advantage is her fighting experience – her body is conditioned for this thanks to years of Muay Thai training; while Ales’ advantage is his superior upper-body strength. This is a real mixed wrestling encounter between two amateurs that are still learning the moves. It is not very technical, however the intensity of the fight is in the best traditions of Fight Pulse.
We have only had an hour of training with Katniss prior to shooting this video, and one can see how she is improvising in order to fill in the gaps. The last headscissors and gut wrench combination that she achieved out of nowhere impressed us very much. We can vouch that Katniss will be a very skillful and entertaining wrestler very soon, as her skills grow by minute. There are several scissor submissions, a grapevine submission and more in the match. The interviews before and after the match are longer than usual, as we often do them when we introduce a new female wrestler.
