"I say just lock all the fighters in the gym and come back in an hour and see who is still standing, then hand him a trophy."

ahh yes, there can be only one.

i've competed in ippon kumite 3 times now and it has good and bad points as well. i like its focus on (im sorry in advance for saying this) the finishing blow, but i hate how the judges fail to recoginize anything other then a straight punch or kick. having a someone else call weather or not your attack was "good" can be frustrating as hell, theres only one real test for that. but no one wants to attend his classes.
its not supposed to make sense
