I read so many times in the press about "Karate Champs" in the "Tag" competitions or as I like to call them "Tippy Tappy, Bouncy Bouncy, Strike, Score a Point and Scream Kumite" that is current with the WKA, WKF and other "Karate" organisation that got out of their depth in a real situation. And get defeated etc by a gang of youths, a Streetfighter or mugger etc
Atleast with Knockdown Karate you get to know what it sort of feels like to be in a real situation.
I've never heard of a Kyokushin Karateka that got defeated by a Gang of Youths, Streetfighter or a Mugger etc.
Continuous is sort of getting there but Full contact is the way forward.
A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.
