There are competitions where all weapons are allowed, it's called Muay Thai, so if your up to the challenge give it a go.
Kyokushin kumite fighting without face punches has no padding and therefor is extremly demanding on the body and i have to laugh at anyone who scoffs at the fighting ability of Kyokushin fighters. Easy to do on the net, bit harder in reality.

Tournaments can be good or bad, depending on who runs them. If a mcdojo runs a tourny, then the flashy katas will win, and you can be sure all the students are well trained in point sparring.

If a traditionalist runs the tourny though, practical MA will win out, and the judges for sparring will actually quit scoring the quick cheesy no value sparring techniques after the first or second fight.
