Fightfest 2023 - Round 2: Sarah vs Djamila

[Toggle Names]

Description: A DJ and a Stripper. That's the start of a great party. But only one will be standing in the end.

It's time for more fun at the International Fighting Festival. And there's going to be fun in a lot more ways than what one might expect! Because one of the fighters here is the fighter who brings fun and excitement wherever she goes. With her swift maneuvers and upbeat attitude, Sarah Kuzumi is noted for bringing a positive and unique experience to every fight she's in. Not to mention the fact she always has flashy ways of making her entrance!

With a round of applause and cheers from her fans, Sarah comes running towards the stage quickly before doing a forwards leap onto the stage, doing a somersault and then landing in a semi-crouched position before standing up and clapping her hands twice and waving. "Thank you, everybody! It's great to be back here! I'm looking forward to having a wonderful time, and I hope each and every one of you are willing to do the same! It's time to get this party started!"

With that, Sarah begins to do some light stretching and warming up, waiting for her opponent to arrive. All the while there's that typical smile on her face.

After Sarah's introduction is done, Djamila can be seen walking toward the platform, using her staff slash pole as a cane. The announcer introduces her as she makes her way there.

And the other fighter is also about fun and entertainment. The adult kind. She's blind, but don't let this fool you, she can kick ass just fine. A great match is about to happen in a few moments.

Djamila gets in her corner, and rounds of applause started again. She has her fans too, apparently. When it dies down, she speaks. "Do not hold back. Give it your best, and I promise to do the same. May the best woman win."

After a moment, she flips her staff and gets in a ready position. Waiting.

Upon spotting Djamila and the fact that she's wearing a blindfold, Sarah nods a little with a smile of approval and eagerness on her face. "Every opponent I face always presents a new challenge, and I am sure that you are going to be no exception to this." After finishing her stretches by lowering herself into a side split(!) briefly, she pushes herself back up and spins around before looking at Djamila. "I intend to give it my all, just like I am sure you will too. May the best woman win, indeed, and know that I am fully confident in you!"

Showing good sportsmanship and encouragement, Sarah gets into her position and starts performing the ginga as she waits for Djamila to get into her position as well. Once they're both in position, it's all about waiting for the official to give the signal to begin the fight, and then it will be on. As Sarah waits, she smiles as she anticipates what kind of techniques this woman is capable of.

Djamila          0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0            Sarah

Gives a smile to her opponent and slowly moves into position as well. She doesn't use her staff as a cane this time, but she still stops in front of Sarah and bows in respect then she waits. She is wearing a simple orange-looking bra, and a long orange skirt with a big slight on the left leg, almost to her waist. She is also wearing thigh-high and a head cover, as well as of course her not so famed blindfold. One might wonder why she needs a blindfold, but rumors have it she wears it everywhere. and

When the fight is officially underway, she slams her staff down. If one can feel chi, one would feel some at the base of the staff to keep it upright like a pole. She then jumps on the pole and reverses herself on it, holding on with her legs. She reaches toward Sarah and, if she has her way, grabs her legs and pulls them from under her.

The match is indeed underway

Djamila          0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0            Sarah

Even if she has a blindflold on, Sarah knows that Djamila is more than a capable fighter. As long as you have the devotion and determination, you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it! Sarah is watching Djamila eagerly as she waits to see what her opponent is capable of. When she sees Djamila lift her staff, she's eager to see what will happen next.

When the staff goes down, Sarah can sense the chi underneath her bare feet, and she smiles even more. "You're quite the capable one I see!" Sarah says with a smile. When Djamila comes towards her, Sarah watches intently as her opponent tries to grab her legs, but just as she's gotten a grasp, Sarah pulls away at the last second.

"Well, you've got quite the skill!" Sarah says with a smile indicating she's quite amazed by her opponent. "You're going to give me quite the challenge I'm sure!" She waits for Djamila to get back onto her feet before attempting to go deep with a Capoeira-style sweeping kick.

COMBATSYS: Sarah successfully hits Djamila with Light Kick.

Djamila          0/-------/-----==|-------\-------\0            Sarah

she gotta give it to Sarah. She's fast, and Djamila hasn't met her fighting style before. She comes back empty handed, and lets herself fall back on her feet, but she's not quick enough to move away from the first kick, and she takes it with a oof. She knows she will have a bruise from that kick, but that's part of the game. "You're going to give me quite the challenge yourself. I love it, thank you!"

Even if she got hit, she's not letting it bring her down. You're always bound to get hit in a fight. You gotta know the pain to be able to give it well after all.

She gets her staff back up and then gently spins to the left side of Sarah on light feet before putting it back down. Same chi feeling once again. She once more jumps on the pole in a reverse positions, but this time using her jump momentum, she extends her legs and let herself spins around, her legs like helicopter blades as she slowly lower back to the ground. Whether she hits or not, once on the ground, she gets back on her feet.

Djamila          0/-------/---====|====---\-------\0            Sarah

Sarah returns to the ginga quickly and continues moving from side to side, watching Djamila as she recovers from the attack and continues the fight. "I love a good challenge, and it's always good to see an opponent who likes a good challenge too!" She smiles. "You're doing a great job, don't stop now!"

And then, Sarah gets hit by those spinning legs, knocking her for a bit of a loop as she goes spinning around and around like a top, leaving her a bit dazed for a moment.

"So did anyone remember to order the cheeseburgers for tonight?" Sarah babbles a little before shaking her head and getting back into the ginga, stopping only briefly to adjust her baseball cap. Despite the hit she just sustained, she's still smiling. "Now that was a great technique! I love seeing what other fighters have up their sleeves!"

Clapping her hands twice as if trying to focus herself again, Sarah advances on Djamila. "This is what I was hoping for, a great fight, and I've already gotten a good taste of it! Let's keep it going!" She thrusts her hands in front of her, waving outward slightly, while shooting forth a projectile that somewhat resembles a large butterfly. "I can use chi too!"

COMBATSYS: Djamila dodges Sarah's Flash Butterfly.

Djamila          0/-------/---====|====---\-------\0            Sarah

Djamila can't help it, when she feels her legs connecting. She can take blows, but sometimes she will give some back in return.

"My first opponent seemed to have crumbled when I told her she would never be good enough." She says to Sarah when she compliments her on her technique. "I've never been against someone who fights like you. I need to adapt now."

THen she receives a large butterfly kind of projectile, heading straight for her. But when it's about to hit her, Djamila is no longer there. She's on her pole, on the other side, leaning her body. No staff should be able to hang like that. Yet, with her chi, it works.

"That was a nice chi, as far as I can tell." Then suddenly, her staff disconnects with the ground, and she swings it toward Sarah's left side as she does a little spin, getting her in another position. It's almost like somewhat she knows where Sarah is most times.

COMBATSYS: Djamila successfully hits Sarah with Evasive Strike.

Djamila          0/-------/---====|======-\-------\0            Sarah

"Impressive!" Sarah says with a smile as Djamila dodges her projectile. "You are truly an impressive woman!" Not just because the woman dodged her projectile despite being blind, but the efficiency and grace she showed when she did it. "It seems you become more challenging with every moment. This is truly going to be a wonderful fight!"

Now you see her, now you don't...

Djamila disappears and then reappears literally. Before Sarah can react, she's hit once again by the staff. It doesn't hurt as bad as it did last time, but it does indicate that Djamila is quite the capable fighter. Even in spite of the pain she's in, Sarah manages to rub her injury a little before maintaining her ginga once again.

"Pretty good!" Sarah comments. "You've got some real good style, I have to say." She steps back a little to give herself a little extra distance. "Let's keep it going, shall we?" With that, Sarah takes a running start before dropping into a forwards somersault on the ground. When she's close enough to Djamila, she attempts to leap up with a swift uppercut.

COMBATSYS: Sarah successfully hits Djamila with Roll With It.

Djamila          1/-------/=======|=======\-------\0            Sarah

Djamila gets to hit Sarah again. So far so good. Sarah is very enthousiastic about it all. She's not sure she can meet the extreme niceless she display. "Just trying my best. You will surprise me as well again, I am sure." That is prophetic, and sooner than she thinks.% R
"Let keep going until we can't stand anymore." And then, just like that, Sarah rolls at her in a fowards sommersault, and ends up with an uppercut, which slams straight into Djamila's jaw. She didn't expect that at all, and it takes her off her feet. "oof, that was something else. Great job. Can never count you out. Ouch." She spits some blood out of her mouth and then slowly gets back up. She grabs her staff back. With two hands. What is she going to do.

She starts swinging her hips from side to side in a soft motion, and she makes a meditating sounds. Some kind of wind chi can be felt moving around her. It's caressing her almost. She doesn't do anything else right now, but it seems to help her body. She seems in her own little world now.

COMBATSYS: Djamila makes the om sound and wind chi flies around her for a short moment.

Djamila          1/-----==/=======|=======\-------\0            Sarah

Sarah is a little shocked when she sees Djamila spitting up blood, but then she realizes that her opponent is OK. "Of course, the party isn't going to end anytime soon I hope!" She says as she continues dancing around Djamila, waiting for her next action. "The longer it goes, the more interesting things get!" She adds.

When Djamila doesn't do anything at first, but instead uses what appears to be meditation, Sarah seems to be a little surprised by that, but then shrugs it off. Everyone has their own way of keeping themselves mentally going.

"Sometimes it's better to step back and do nothing," Sarah says with a smile as she keeps her ginga going while watching Djamila to see what else is going on. "I love surprises personally!"

COMBATSYS: Sarah focuses on her next action.

[        \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
Djamila          1/-----==/=======|=======\-------\0            Sarah

"It's not going to end anytime soon. Unless you drop down soon." At that moment, one would wink, but that was impossible for her

She keeps moving her hips a moment more, just savoring the moment as Sarah doesn't seem to do anything either. Then suddenly, staff disconnects from the ground, then she kicks it toward Sarah, and if she calculates correctly, gets it back on a bounce. It looks like nothing really, and she just improved on the moment thing. It seems that move was for pure fun and nothing more "I like fighting with you, you're fun. Must be a good DeeJay" She reaches to grab her staff back.

COMBATSYS: Djamila successfully hits Sarah with Thrown Object.

Djamila          1/----===/=======|=======\==-----\1            Sarah

Sarah could expect a wink, even if she couldn't see it. She also thinks she's ready for anything.

Except for that darned staff!

Sarah gets caught and tripped up, landing on her rear... rather hard no less!

"Oof!" Sarah cries out as she rubs her bottom before pushing herself back up, wincing slightly as she does so. "That was quite embarrassing! If this were a movie, I'd insist that go on the outtakes reel!"

Even after being hit hard, Sarah still manages to maintain her jocular attitude. "Oh yes, I love being a DJ! There's nothing I love more than playing a good party! Sometimes I'll even go out and dance on the floor from time to time!"

Sarah moves closer to Djamila and then drops down onto the ground sideways. From there, while propping herself up using her arm, she spins around with her legs outstretched, albeit at slightly different angles. The upper one is stuck out behind her slightly so that she can attempt one trip-up, while the second can act as an additional one or as an extra effort if the first one misses.

COMBATSYS: Sarah successfully hits Djamila with Tornado Warning.

Djamila          1/-======/=======|=======\===----\1            Sarah

Djamila didn't expect to hit with that attack, but by the sound of it, she did do something good. She would look surprised if she could. Perhaps, her mouth gives a hint about it. She does catch her staff back. "Outtakes are suppose to be fun. Thats what people say. No shame though, you couldn't know what I was planning, i didn't even know." She does catch her staff back, though.

"Good, should always love what you do. Otherwise do something else, yeah?". When Sarah does her attack, Djamila jumps over the first one, but she didn't expect at all the second, which trips her up and makes her falls on the ground rather hard. "Ok, that I didn't expect." She takes a deep breath. "My hat off to you, if I had one. I will feel that in the morning." She forces herself back up, however.

Then she concentrates. "Wind, help me. I need this now." There is some wind around her, before she spins her staff over head, more winds gets charged into the staff, or so it feels. Then she brings it in front of her, still spinning it and rather fast, as she trying to hit Sarah with both her spinning staff and the wind coming out of it.

COMBATSYS: Sarah blocks Djamila's Teddy.

"Wow, you're really something else," Sarah says with amazement. "That's truly something else." Unsure of what to make of it, Sarah crouches down slightly and gets into a defensive stance, hoping to absorb what's coming at her. Unfortunately, the staff hits harder than she's anticipating, and even though she's defending, it still hurts like nothing else.

"Wow, it seems I need to pick up the pace!" Sarah says, wiping her forehead of sweat that's coming down from under her baseball cap. "Time to show you what I've got up my sleeves!"

With that, Sarah attempts to launch into a cartwheel, attempting to use the momentum of her legs to stun Djamila. If that works, Sarah will drop into a faster version of the attack she just showed off before launching herself upwards with an uppercut. All while focusing her chi into her attacks.

COMBATSYS: Sarah successfully hits Djamila with My Favorite Remix.

Djamila          1/------</<<<<<<<|===----\-------\0            Sarah

"Kudos for taking it better than I expect very well done." A little frustrations, but at herself not at Sarah herself. Come on Djamila, push.

When It's Sarah's turn, she tries to be ready, but apparently she isn't. Djamila tries to simple not be there again, but it doesn't work. First Sarah's legs hits Djamila, and keeps her in place. Then more legs, damaging her even more. But the worse is the uppercut with the chi in it. That sends her flying up again and there is a crack. Something gave away it seems. It might look like she is done for.

But no, even if she gets back up slower than before, she still in the match. "Fuck that hurts. Perfect this. You have a killer." She tells Sarah. It seems to be painful to talk though. Then, she slams her staff in the ground. Getting it stuck with chi yet again.

Then she jumps on her staff and spins, but upright this time, adding wind chi for speed. Then she does a roundhouse, aiming for Sarah's head.

Even though she's hurting and she's trying not to show it, when Sarah blocks Djamila's attack, it causes her to wince visibly. She stumbles back, almost falling down again, but catching herself this time. "You're putting up a great challenge, I like that." Sarah's smile is weak and forced. "Win or lose, it's still a good fight!"

The official goes to check on Sarah for a moment, but Sarah gives the official a thumbs up to assure them that she's still able to fight.

"Still got a few more tricks up my sleeve!" Sarah says as she leaps into a handstand, then proceeds to launch herself into a spinning attack with her body completely straight, aimed right at Djamila feet first.

COMBATSYS: Sarah successfully hits Djamila with Spinning Missile Strike.

"Likewise" Djamila tells her. "You are still standing. So yeah win or lose, it's still a good fight. I still feel I can win. I want to kick Hawksley's ass." SHe smirks.

Then Sarah goes on a spinning spree. Djamila moves away, yet her sides gets hit as she doesn't move quick and far enough. Still after the blows she keeps moving away. She doesn't fall. She takes a deep breath to steady herself, then she screams a guttural scream, summoning the last of her strength. "Give me strength!"

Once ready, she runs toward Sarah at high speed. She pushes herself beyond her limits for this and then uses her staff as a pole, launching herself into a jump kick toward her opponent.

COMBATSYS: Djamila successfully hits Sarah with Butterfly.

Djamila          0/-------/-----<<|=======\===----\1            Sarah

Sarah's a bit weakened from the fight, so there's not much she can do, save for take the impact from the jump kick. She can't block or dodge in time, it's all about accepting fate. Sometimes even the best of the best can't do anything but take the hit.

"Unngh..." Sarah says as she stumbles backwards, sliding on the soles of her bare feet as she tries not to fall over. "Ooof... looks like... this is the last song." Sarah says as she gasps for air. "Might be all over."

In a last ditch effort, Sarah brings forth a projectile like before, only this time it's a swarm of projectiles, almost like she's swarming Djamila with butterflies or something. She's giving it her all with the look on her face...

And then she falls flat on her face with the official about to declare her knocked out most likely.

COMBATSYS: Sarah can no longer fight.

She's breathing so quickly right now, her blood pumping. When she hits Sarah with the jump kick, she is happy on the inside, but she's still having this rush inside her. "If this is over, you have my respect." She speaks quicker too.

But it's not over, Sarah is still having one more trick off her sleeve. She's sending. What the hell is that, a bunch of butterflies? WEll Djamia knows better than to stay there. She slams her staff in the ground for what would be the last time for this match, and she jumps on the very of it, keeping her equilibrium that way, letting the swarms go under her.

A few moments more and then she falls to the ground. She's not out, but she's drained. Sarah made her give her all to this fight. This girl has a hell of a lot of potential. She stays still, on one knee, breathing deeply.

Sarah is tended to, if she needs it, and an official comes in to raise Djamila's arm up. The announcer "There we have it folks. The winner of this round, Djamila!" Djamila smiles, but winces as well. She did need some medical attention too. She looks toward Sarah. "I hope we meet again in some fashion. Thank you for pushing me so far."

COMBATSYS: Djamila has ended the fight here.
