Pick of the Pix Series, Star #2, Exciting Female Sparring Action

Lens: 85mm, 1/160s, f/2.5, ISO: 1250

Amy Reeder and Courtney Meleisea exhibit some great techniques in an exciting sparring match.

The NZ world champs team female members sparring at the Star Series #2 tournament was spectacular. I often find photographing female sparring is not as interesting due to a lack of intensity but there was no shortage at this tournament. It was awesome to watch.

And I finally catch a good image of Courtney on the offensive.
PS: [21/7] Estee pointed out she thinks this is Aramai vs Hamish - whoops. Sorry guys :-/

Courtney getting advice from her second, Luke Thompson.
