We were in a large state sponsored tournament (open tournament) with a pretty big group for us a lot of years ago.

One of our guys was an automobile mechnic by trade 6'2" of rippled solid muscle. For fun he lifted grown men and women off the floor with his left hand and held them suspended... for a time before class. Spooky strong. Eventually he was sparring. He hit his charging opponent like a battering ram with a textbook combination punch and literally stopped all forward momentum by the opponent (the opponent had no understanding of balance, but lots of idiot bravado and was as nasty as he was large). The guy ate two text book strikes.

The referee, gave our mechanic no points and was eventually disqualified... "for boxing" in a karate tournament!

Hey Laura...think I ran into a clip of the event. Was this the match where you were having an asthma attack?

My kid had bad asthma and took TKD...and sparring was something we had to watch carefully.

Ran into it? Ha, I bet you were hunting for it!

Yeah that would be me. It's a real challenge. I've never really had that much of a problem breathing in a match before, winded sure, but never where I've been wheezing 30 seconds into the match. Granted, I knew better, should have stopped when I had problems between matches, but the opportunity to fight someone new, was just too enticing.

At least I know I can fight for 4 minutes without breathing. And she, at least, was gasping as much as I was afterwards too.

I'm surprised he wasn't disqualified for hitting someone with textbooks.

Or is that allowed in Karate sparring?

Few text book techniques in here you can see?

There are some things allowed in this form of karate sparring that might have an interest to some- one who claims
knowledge of karate sparring or doesnt approve of kata perhaps?
